Have you ever wondered what happened to your favorite reality TV star once their time was up on that show you just couldn't get enough of? Well, wonder no more because reality show greats like, Laura Govan, Jennifer Williams, Tiffany Pollard, Benzino and others, who brought a lot of personality and a lot of drama to the small screen are making comeback with the new reality series The Next 15, set to air in February on TV One.
Carlos King is the creative mind behind the new reality series, and producer of other reality hits like Real Housewives of Atlanta, Hollywood Divas, Selling It In The ATL and others great TV specials according to Wet Paint. Now the creative mind is going back those personalities that fans were first introduced to on shows like, VH1's Flavor Of Love and MTV's Real World: Philadelphia. Personalities like Pollard, aka "New York" and Karamo Brown from the Real World haven't been in the spotlight for years but they will join others who fans have grown to know in more recent times like Williams, one of the original cast members of VH1's Basketball Wives. The entire concept sounds very similar to The Surreal Life.
King took to Instagram to share a promo photo and 15 second video clip to introduce the cast to his followers.

The full six member cast includes Govan from Basketball Wives L.A.; Williams, Pollard, Brown, Benzino from Love And Hip Hop Atlanta, and Claudia Jordan, formerly of the RHOA. It was first announced that production had begun on the project in November 2015 according to Indie Wire. Since then, a few members of the cast have been sharing photos together on Instagram and telling fans to get ready for what's to come in February with The Next 15. Pollard and Williams posted photos alongside Benzino, who recently had a baby with another LHHA alum, Althea.

King and his entertainment company, Kingdom Reign Entertainment have yet to release a full official trailer for the show but a quick promo clip was released on his Instagram displaying the faces of the cast.

The 8-episode reality show is set to not only show fans what happens on camera with the talent but, also take a close look at what happens behind the scenes as well. According to Wet Paint, King's vision is to reveal to fans all that goes into creating and filming a reality show. The idea is to "showcase the normally unseen 'fourth wall' between the producers, and the talent revealing what happens not only on camera, but behind it too as the action unfolds," explained a TV One network representative according to the site.
