OWN EXPANDS POPULAR FRIDAY NIGHT UNSCRIPTED SERIES LINEUP WITH "BELLE COLLECTIVE" PREMIERING JANUARY 15

New Series Spotlights a Quintet of Take-charge Southern Belle Boss Ladies Who Are Redefining the Rules of Living Life on Their Own Terms in Jackson, Mississippi

Los Angeles - OWN announced today that the network will expand its popular Friday night unscripted programming lineup with "Belle Collective" premiering Friday, January 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The new series from the producers behind the hit "Love & Marriage: Huntsville" centers on the personal and professional lives of five successful, glamourous boss women who are redefining what it means to be a southern belle in Jackson, Mississippi.

These dynamic women represent Mississippi's finest Black female entrepreneurs, determined to break ceilings - glass and otherwise - while shredding long-held stereotypes of the South. They must set aside their differences to redevelop a struggling mid-twentieth century historic district that was once known as the hub for Black-owned businesses.

The five principal belles include:

· Dr. Antoinette Liles, one of the few Black female dentists in the state. Dr. Liles is navigating a recent divorce and opening her very own dental practice.

· Lateshia Pearson is the CEO of the National Women's Brunch Organization. Her brunches bring powerful women together and help promote self-empowerment, but now she has one goal in mind: to bring the ladies together to revitalize Farish Street, an iconic Black neighborhood in Jackson, Mississippi.

· Latrice Rogers is the young mastermind and entrepreneur behind Goddess Lengths, the most successful hair care emporium in the region.

· Marie Hamilton-Abston, a self-made millionaire and CEO of the bustling Hamilton Davis Mental Health empire.

· Tambra Cherie is the newly single midday diva and on-air radio personality for Jackson's top hip-hop and R&B station and host of the most controversial radio show in the city, "The Relationship Hour."

"Belle Collective" is executive produced by Kingdom Reign Entertainment with Carlos King and Slane Hatch serving as executive producers. Angela Dugan, Mimi Adams and Cherelle Hinds serve as co-executive producers.
