The untitled series from Daniels is set to follow three women (Demorest, Destiny, O’Grady), who form a girl group with hopes of making it big in the music industry, and the choices with which they’re faced along the way.

Queen Latifah will play Carlotta, an Atlanta beauty salon owner that guides the three girls despite her dislike of their dreams of music.

Production begins this month, but will it be the new Empire-type worthy?
