E! has announced it has ordered a new reality series, The Platinum Life, which will follow the females behind some of the music industry's male icons.
The Platinum Life, slated to premiere in Fall 2017, will follow fierce and savvy women as well as their significant others, including Nelly and Ne-Yo, as they live the high life.
The leading ladies on the show will include Crystal Smith, who is married to Grammy Award-winning singer and producer Ne-Yo -- who also judges World of Dance -- La'Myia Good, who wed Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Eric Bellinger; and Shantel Jackson, who is in a relationship with Grammy Award-winning rapper and producer Nelly.
The Platinum Life will also star Lola Monroe, a rapper and songwriter who is in a relationship with rapper King Los; Asiah Azante, who is married to multi-platinum recording artist Kid Ink; Nazanin Mandi, who is engaged to Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Miguel; and Alycia Bellamy, who is a newly-single recording artist.
"LA's music industry is notorious for exclusive parties, high-profile romances, and huge fan followings, but being in relationships with some of the biggest names in the business is not always pitch perfect," E! teases.
Several of the women will fight for the spotlight "in a male dominated game," according to the network, while others must be on the "lookout for groupies" who attempt to get attention from their men.
The show's female stars will also be shown attending red-carpet events, award shows, sold-out concerts, and afterparties.
The ladies will attempt to navigate the music industry with strength and confidence.
"The music industry is known for big, outspoken personalities living lavish lifestyles, but it's also an extremely tough business to succeed in," E! executive Jeff Olde said in a statement.
"We are excited to give viewers an all-access pass to see how these fearless women climb to the top both personally and professionally."
The Platinum Life is being produced by STXtv and Tower 2 Productions with Ryan Holcomb, Jason Goldberg, Shanta Conic, and Kim McKoy serving as executive producers.
