Several VH1 series are moving to MTV, including Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, which is getting what’s called a “reboot” of sorts.
MTV’s new Tuesday reality show lineup features new seasons of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, MTV Couples Retreat and Caught in the Act: Unfaithful.
The block of programming, called “Tuesday Night Takeover,” also includes a new series Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta “Run it Back,” which airs 7/6c and 8/7c. The series features Love & Hip Hop celebrities from all four cities looking back at the first season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta to give behind-the-scenes tea and insider info on what went down.
Fans can expect cast members to hold nothing back when talking about the series’ most notable moments. Cast members include Mimi Faust, Karlie Redd, Erica Dixon, Scrappy, Shay Johnson, Shekinah Anderson, Yung Joc, Momma Dee, Ray J, RoccStar, Peter Gunz, Rich Dollaz, Cisco Rosado, Spice, Rasheeda and Kirk Frost, Paris, ZellSwag, Brooke Valentine, Marcus Black, Trick Daddy, Bobby Lytes, Jonathan Fernandez, Khaotic, Yandy and Karen “KK” King.
The next season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta premieres this summer, rebooting the season from its former life at VH1 to its new TV home. The season will focus more on “the aspirational lives of the elite boss women who have built their empires in Atlanta. It will follow a more docu approach to storytelling, focusing on the nuances of what it takes for these women to juggle their careers, relationships, aspirations, as well as the posh parties and celebrations which bring them all together.”
MTV Couples Retreat airs 9/8c and features six celebrity couples testing their love in Las Vegas by getting out of their comfort zones and understand more about each other.
“From ziplining through the Vegas Strip, survivalist training in the wilderness with an expert ninja survivalist, trapezing with former Cirque du Soleil performers, to herding cattle and untamed bulls, the activities will challenge the couple on a different level,” according to the description.
The last series coming rounding out the Tuesday Night Takeover is Caught in the Act: Unfaithful, premiering this summer. Tami Roman hosts the new season as she continues to help people catch their partners cheating. After the investigation, the victim can choose between two options: “to team up with their partner’s other lover or take them both down in an undercover ambush.”
All the shows are executive produced by Antoinette Media, which SHOWTIME and MTV Entertainment Studios Chief Creative Officer and President of Content, Nina L. Diaz, described in a statement.
“On the heels of launching Antoinette Media with Lashan Browning, we’re thrilled to continue fueling our robust unscripted slate of hits on MTV and introduce new audiences to the cultural phenomenon Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta as well as fan favorites like Couples Retreat and Caught in the Act: Unfaithful,” she said.
After VH1 landed under BET Networks’ purview, RuPaul’s Drag Race was the first series to move to MTV. Now, with Paramount Global confirmed to be looking to sell BET Networks (including BET, VH1 and BET+) these other series moving to MTV within the larger Paramount Global fold.
