Finally I can talk about a project I’ve been nervous and excited about for months! Yes, your girl Miss Info and the whole Hot 97 team will be coming to your living rooms at the end of this month! March 31st — mark your calendars.
We’ve been shooting a comedy series called This Is Hot 97 since November 2013. The cast is: Ebro, Flex, Angie, Cipha Sounds, Rosenberg, Laura Stylez and myself. And yes, our show is produced by Ian Gelfand and Mona Scott-Young of Love and Hip Hop infamy. Lol!
So does that mean This Is Hot 97 will be 30 minutes of Worldstar brawls and hip hop General Hospital? Or will it be more like The Office meets that classic ’80s sitcom WKRP In Cincinnati? What do you think?
More details to come : )
Beginning March 31 at 10:30 p.m., VH1’s cameras will take viewers inside New York’s No. 1 hip-hop radio station. The half-hour comedy will not only feature the crew but also the well-known celebrities who frequent the station. Hot 97 is being executive produced by Mona Scott-Young of Monami Entertainment and Toby Barraud, Stefan Springman, Mala Chapple and Ian Gelfand of Eastern.
