NEW YORK, NY – February 24, 2012 – WE tv announced today it has greenlit the new original series Hair Divas: Hollywood, showcasing the work and life of celebrity hair stylist Kim Kimble as she coifs Hollywood A-listers. WE tv has ordered eight, one-hour episodes from 3 Ball Productions/Eyeworks USA, to debut on Thursday, June 7 at 9 pm, ET/PT.
When it comes to celebrity hair, Kim Kimble is one of the biggest names in Hollywood. From movies to music, Kim is an image maker and a trendsetter. Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Rowland and Shakira are just a handful of A-listers who keep Kim’s number on speed dial so she can whip up their custom styles and images for glamorous events. While handling her star-studded clientele is a full time job, this elite style queen also manages a successful retail product line and runs an exclusive Hollywood salon staffed with talented but high-strung stylists, including her mother! Rivalry is fierce and the desire to be on top is even fiercer -- hair isn't the only thing in this salon that gets cut.
“This new series will further strengthen our Thursday night line-up, which we’ve scheduled to super-serve African American women who are looking for entertaining stories about relatable and interesting characters,” said Kim Martin, President & General Manager, WE tv. “We look forward to Hair Divas: Hollywood being a great complement to Braxton Family Values, our hit series which delivers nearly one million viewers each week, and the upcoming Mary Mary, which follows the Grammy-winning gospel duo who balance success with raising a family.”
“Hair is sexy, hair is stylish and hair is drama,” said Kim Kimble. “My show will give WE tv viewers a first-hand look at my crazy, busy life styling the world’s top celebrities and running my exclusive hair studio in West Hollywood. And all while building my brand and taking it to the next level. My life is high style in the fast lane.”
Hair Divas: Hollywood is produced by 3 Ball Productions/Eyeworks USA, LLC. Executive Producers for Eyeworks are JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, DJ Nurre and Heidi Dahmen. The Executive Producer for WE tv is Suzanne Gladstone.
