Lifetime Announces Production Deals With Queen Latifah & Toni Braxton

Lifetime has inked major production deals with both Queen Latifah and Toni Braxton, the network announced Thursday as part of its upfront presentation.

Under Latifah’s deal, the rapper-singer-actress will serve as executive producer of the documentary “Where Did the Women of Hip Hop Go?,” which tells the history of the pioneering female rappers in a world dominated by men and explores what the future holds for the next generation of female emcees. She’ll also star in and executive produce the one-hour special “U.N.I.T.Y.,” which has cameras following her own effort to remake her pivotal hit single from 1993.

Braxton has signed a multi-picture production deal with the cable channel, with one of the films serving as the centerpiece of its upcoming holiday programming block, It’s a Wonderful Lifetime. The programming block will feature 14 all-new original movies to debut this November and December.

“Both Queen Latifah and Toni Braxton have been part of the Lifetime family for many years and its proven that our audiences love them as much as we do and we are excited they will be back on the network for even more,” said Tanya Lopez, EVP of movies, limited series & original movie acquisitions for Lifetime and LMN.
