Naturi Naughton is set to co-star alongside Eve in ABC’s forthcoming music drama, “Queens,” from Zahir McGee.
In “Queens,” four estranged and out-of-touch women in their 40s reunite for a chance to recapture their fame and regain the swagger they had as the Nasty B**ches – their ’90s group that made them legends in the hip-hop world.
Naughton plays Jill, aka Da Thrill, a founding member of the Nasty Bitches — the group she formed with her high school friends. Da Thrill lived fast, had rugged rhymes and a troubling drug habit. Today, Jill couldn’t be more put together. She’s a devout Catholic living a quiet life in Montana with her husband. But everything isn’t as idyllic as it seems. Jill is haunted by past secrets.
The Nasty B**ches reuniting allows Jill to escape her issues at home, but returning to her persona as Da Thrill conjures up difficult memories. But a friendship with a young rapper that she has almost nothing in common with will hilariously help Jill figure out the person she needs to be.
Eve will play the role of Brianna, another member of the Nasty B**ches.
