VH1 today announced the cast and showrunners for the network’s latest scripted series Daytime Divas, formerly known as Satan’s Sisters.
Joining the previously announced Vanessa Williams who will play the role of ‘Maxine’ – the creator/host of the popular talk show ‘The Lunch Hour’ are Tichina Arnold (“Survivor’s Remorse”) as ‘Mo,’ Chloe Bridges (“The Carrie Diaries”) as ‘Kibby,’ Camille Guaty (“Scorpion”) as ‘Nina’ and Fiona Gubelmann (“Wilfred”) as ‘Heather’ all of whom play co-hosts on the fictional daytime series. McKinley Freeman (“Hit The Floor”) has also been cast as ‘Shawn,’ Maxine’s son and ‘The Lunch Hour’ producer.
Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler (“Awkward,” “90210”) are showrunners as well as executive producers. They are represented by Paradigm and Stephanie Davis at Wetdog Entertainment.
Principal photography for Daytime Divas begins in Atlanta this month.
Daytime Divas is inspired by Star Jones’ 2011 book Satan’s Sisters… A Novel of Fiction set behind the scenes of a long-running daytime television show, chronicling the fireworks that erupt daily between the five female co-hosts. On screen, they are best friends with five very different points of view, but behind the scenes, they inhabit a world of power struggles, cat fights and cocktails.
