If you’re looking for a tall mug of steaming hot chocolate to warm up your winter nights, then Lifetime is serving what you need! The network is turning up the heat with their new reality series Vivica’s Black Magic featuring Vivica A. Fox assembling an all-star male dance revue in hopes of landing a permanent spot on the Las Vegas strip.

Here’s the first official preview trailer for Vivica’s Black Magic (set to premiere on January 4) followed by the network’s synopsis of the show:

Vivica A. Fox, an accomplished actress, producer and entrepreneur, is putting her name, her money and her reputation on the line to give women a night they will never forget. With a little help from her girl squad, Eurika and Kiana, Vivica auditions hundreds of hot men, narrowing it down to a group of elite eight with six-packs and moves worthy of a coveted spot in her show. The guys must put aside their egos and personal life dramas, and give it all they have to make the magic happen. Will Vivica be able to pull it off and get Black Magic to her ultimate goal – a spot on the famous Las Vegas Strip?

“I’m Vivica Fox, and I’m looking for seven badass exotic dancers,” Vivica says in the clip. “It is so awesome for the shoe to be on the other foot — to tell them, ‘Baby, now you need to keep it tight and right.'”

Back in May, Vivica spoke with Entertainment Tonight about the show and what motivated her to start her own male dance revue. “I remember back in the day going to see Magic Mike when it first came out,” she said. “There was just no diversity that was represented. I’ve got everything from white chocolate to dark chocolate to caramel to butterscotch, because we know the brothers got some moves.”

And speaking of brothers with moves, here is a little behind-the-scenes video uploaded by Vivica late last year featuring Black Magic doing what they do best:

Just in case that little taste didn’t give you all the chocolate, caramel, and butterscotch flavor you crave, here are photos of every member of the Black Magic exotic male dance revue with their names and bios from Lifetime:
