Bravo has announced that they will be developing and airing a docu-series revolving around the veteran R&B group Xscape.  Love & Hip Hop executive producer Mona Scott Young will serve as the executive producer of the series, and the group is currently filming in their hometown, Atlanta.

Xscape recently announced their reunion to celebrate the upcoming 25th anniversary of the release of their debut single, “Just Kickin’ It” and album, Hummin Comin’ At Cha. The group had massive success with three consecutive platinum albums and six Top 10 hits on the Billboard charts. Fans were disappointed when the group inexplicably disbanded and talks of a reunion have sparked excitement for the project.

The upcoming reality series will feature Kandi Burruss, Tiny Harrisa and LaTocha and Tamika Scott as they gear up for their Essence Festival performance (scheduled at the end of this month) after a 20-year hiatus.

Recently, TV One announced an Xscape biopic titled Who Can I Run To: The Xscape Story, as part of its 2017-18 slate.  The biopic is reportedly inspired by their Unsung episode from 2015.  The episode was the network’s highest-rated in the show’s nine-year run; however, according to the LA Times, the group publicly stated that the film is unauthorized, and called it “disrespectful and disappointing.”  The TV One biopic is being produced in partnership with music producer Jermaine Dupri, who signed the group in 1991 and launched it to multi-platinum success.

The Bravo series is scheduled to air in November.
