Lawd the south is heating up and there is a new reality show called The New Atlanta follows Alexandra Dilworth, Emily Lipman, Africa Miranda, Tribble Reese and Jevon “Vawn” Sims, busy in various professions but able to find common ground in the city’s social scene. One of many new unscripted series making its way to Bravo this year, the series, originally titled Taking Atlanta, is set to introduce six camera-friendly strangers when it bows at 10 p.m. Sept. 17.
“Atlanta last season was just amazing,” says Levine. “The first part of the reunion was the highest-rated ever [2.9 million viewers in adults 18-to-49 and 4.3 million viewers] for any of the franchise. It’s an amazing cast.”
That’s probably one of the reasons why the Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s third spinoff will help launch The New Atlanta in the fall. I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding, starring Housewives fan favorite NeNe Leakes, will be The New Atlanta‘s lead-in.
