Reportedly, the project is written, created and directed by Daniels, centering on three young women who form a girl group with hopes of making it big in the industry, and the choices they face along the way to success and stardom. The outlet reports:

Queen Latifah will play Carlotta, the owner of an Atlanta beauty salon who boasts an amazing voice and becomes a surrogate mother to the three girls — even though she doesn’t approve of their musical aspirations. After a nationwide search, newcomers Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady have joined the project as the members of the group.
