Given the popularity of the flamboyant, high-heels-wearing man-peaches on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta I suppose it was inevitable that someone would try to pitch a reality show based on a similar cast of characters from the ATL. And obeying the definition of the word inevitable “it” has happened in the form of Tha Life: Atlanta, a reality series starring five gay black men living an openly gay lifestyle in Atlanta.
Here are the fellers posing for a promotional photo for the show:
BE Entertainment magazine had an unveiling party for the show’s “sizzle reel” trailer (which you can watch in full HERE) and posted this video from the event on YouTube:
Here’s the full cast of characters for you with their respective splash screens:
J. Will “Mr. Unpredictable”
Donte “The Money Maker”
Al “Super Star”
Terrance “The Mayor of Atlanta”
Will “The Socialite”
Dr. George Smith “The New Face of Atlanta”
Word is that Real Housewives of Atlanta producer Princess Banton-Lofters is working with the show, which seems to be confirmed by an interview she did last July with RollingOut.com about her new production company, Loft 22 Entertainment, in which she was asked about new projects and responded with, “I created a show called, Boys Club, a male reality show. We’re going to start with the Boys Club: Atlanta and I want to expand to different cities. I’ve already created the cast and I teamed up with major production house, Evolution, that actually started the Real Housewives of Orange County franchise.”
My guess is that Boys Club: Atlanta got changed to Tha Life: Atlanta at some point along the way. (With perhaps a brief time as The Eddie Long Show in between) There is no word yet if any networks have picked up the series.
So whatya think folks? Do the boys look interesting enough to tune in for?
