Jermaine Dupri has been a record producer and rapper for some of the biggest names in R & B and rap, working with artists such as Mariah Carey, Usher and Bow Wow. He established his record label So So Def Recordings at a young age with success breaking artists such as Kriss Kross and Da Brat. Dupri continues to build on his empire with involvement in App development and TV production.

Damon Dash co-founded Roc- A- fella Records with Jay Z and Kareem “Biggs” Burke in 1995. He has since begun Damon Dash Music Group and his production company Dame Dash Studios. Dash continues to show the world he isn’t slowing down his domination of the entertainment industry with his ventures in music, production, apparel and alcohol brands.

The show is produced by L. Plummer Media (“The Westbrooks,” “Preachers of LA,” and “Living with Funny”) with Lemuel Plummer, Ray J, Bryan “Birdman” Williams, Snoop Dogg and Chad Greulach serving as Executive Producers.

‘The Kardashians’ of BET? Meet ‘The Westbrooks’ Coming To A Reality TV Screen Near You

the-westbrooks

BET Networks announced today the premiere date of its new original one-hour docu-series #THEWESTBROOKS. The WestBrooks, also known as “The First Family of Social Media”, features five beautiful, yet entirely unique sisters: India, Crystal, Bree, Morgan and Brooke, who have taken the social media world by storm with more than two million followers checking their every move. The show will go behind the tweets and posts to follow the insta-famous family as they work to establish the “WestBrooks Brand,” while doing all that they can to keep their tight-knit family intact in the midst of newfound fame and celebrity.

#THEWESTBROOKS premieres Wednesday, October 14 at 10 PM ET/PT.

About the #THEWESTBROOKS ladies:

 

India (@indialove) is the pampered princess of the family. Most known for her rumored associations with multiple Hip Hop A-listers, this burgeoning model/fashionista stays busy juggling business meetings with posting endless selfies to her active social media accounts.

Crystal (@westbrooks.crystal) is the free-spirited, peace-loving, hippy of the family.  A college finance major by day, Crystal has aspirations of conquering the modeling and acting worlds with her signature smile.

Morgan (@mommyistattedd) is her Dad’s protégé and the tough-as-nails tattooed biker girl with a business mind and a fuse you don’t want to ignite.  Whether it’s riding with her bike club or running multiple businesses, the “Boss Lady” gives 100% to everything she does, including defending her sisters.

Bree (@breecandace) is the temperamental middle child of the group. She’s a mother of one with a budding plus-size modeling imprint on social media which focuses on the beauty of women with curves.

Brooke (@shes_brookelauren) is the big sister and heart of the WestBrooks family.  This grounded mother of three is fiercely protective of her sisters as she makes plans to rule the fitness and fashion worlds with a focus on under-appreciated plus-size women.

While the WestBrooks women receive the majority of the attention, their parents Warren and Candy are far from behind-the-scenes. And while each family member has an individual purpose and passion, it is their familial bond and love that keeps them grounded. “Family is not an important thing, it’s everything.”

#THEWESTBROOKS is Executive Produced by Lemuel Plummer for L. Plummer Media, Jason L. Tolbert, for Field Legend Productions and Le’John Plummer for Art Life Entertainment.
