Welcome to theReality DIVAS series


Info about the Reality 
DIVAS television series

Show/series title: Reality Divas
Running time: Half hour
Created by: S. Michelle Blackwell 


Reality DIVAS series is a lightly scripted (moc-umentary style) digital series. The Divas is seriousness of "Tyler Perry's SISTAS" meets the mocumentary comedy style of “The Office.” It will also follow in the footsteps of popular televised series such as: “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” in that during each episode of the show the main characters, aka the "Divas," will discuss, debate, laugh and may even cry about their lives as woman of a certain age, creed, color and social status. Although lighthearted and funny the show will touch on some poignant issues facing people like the Divas.

The Divas will tackle sensitive subject matter such as divorce, abuse and sexuality along with the trials and tribulations, ups and downs, highs and lows of love, dating and significant others or lack thereof in a fun, uplifting and comic way. They will also openly discuss their parenting-- some even grand-parenting-- ideologies as well as their stressful careers and businesses. 

SEASON 1 will focus on the Divas coming together to plan their 25th college graduation celebration. During the planning stages, the Divas get invited to be a part of a reality series, which spotlight their complicated lives for the world to see. Being a part of the reality show is going to cause serious conflict between the Divas, their families, significant others while simultaneously complicating their business affairs and financial stability.

Location Scouting:

The Divas locations team is currently "scouting" for and accepting venue/names, contact info, links, etc., of local Los Angeles business and theatres locations as well as private residences (to rent out) in which to shoot scenes or episodes of the show. As the show will be shot on location as well as in the studio and on stage, we are open and considering locations for the remote or "on location" shoots. If you own, know someone who owns, heard about, frequent or just think a location (business, theatre or home) would be a cool place to shoot TRDS, please recommend it to us by sending an email with "Location" in the subject line: [email protected].
