Eve Will Lead & Write Original Music in ABC's 'Queens' Pilot

ABC has recruited Eve to lead their upcoming musical pilot, Queens.

The series will center on four estranged and out-of-touch women in their 40s who reunite for a chance to recapture their fame and regain the swagger they had as the Nasty Bitches – their ’90s group that made them legends in the hip-hop world.

Variety says that Eve will play a character named Brianna.

Twenty years ago, Brianna was Professor Sex — one fourth of the Nasty Bitches — rapping about money, sex and her all-around glamorous lifestyle. Today, Brianna is a proud wife and mother of five in a stained sweatsuit who barely has a second to breathe. Not glamorous, but Brianna loves her life.

The Nasty Bitches are a distant, distant memory. But when an opportunity arises for the group to reunite, Brianna will grapple with whether or not she still has the swagger and confidence that made her an icon decades ago.

Eve will also take on another role in the series, as she’ll render original music for it as her character.

Last year, Eve announced that she would be leaving her role as co-host on The Talk.
