In May when we first broke the news of Xscape reuniting for their first performance together in over 15 years at the 2017 ESSENCE Festival, there was mention of a docuseries in the works. This week, it was confirmed that the series will air on Bravo.
“The docuseries is going to show us coming back together to make history again,” Tamika Scott told ESSENCE.
The ladies revealed that they were in talks with Mona Scott-Young’s production company, Monami Entertainment, about handling the project chronicling their journey in the music industry.
“You’ll get to see the process of us getting back in the lab and learning each other all over again as adults,” Scott said. “Even though we’ve been friends since we were teenagers, we’re all grown now so, it’s about learning each other’s habits and ways of thinking today. Plus, figuring out the music and choreography.”
The group also shared exclusviely with ESSENCE that following the docuseries, an official biopic will be released and will feature long-awaited new music for fans.
“Next year will be 25 years since we released our first number one single, “Just Kickin’ It,” Scott says. “So, we’re doing our biopic and within the biopic, we’ll be doing original music. Not a whole album but, you’ll be able to get some new songs.”
ESSENCE has reached out for confirmation from Monami and Bravo and will update accordingly.
