SVOD Network Zeus To Launch New Original Series This Fall; Breakout Hit The Real Blac Chyna Returns For Season 2

New Series Include JOSELINE’S CABARET from Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta Star Joseline Hernandez, Underground Soccer Drama SHADOW PLAYERS by Global Soccer Superstar Ronaldinho Gaucho, DR. BLACKSON from comedian Michael Blackson, Plus the Dating Escapades of Blac Chyna’s Mom on TOKYO TONI’S FINDING LOVE ASAP

ZEUS, the first-ever SVOD network created by millennials for millennials, builds on the success of a string of signature hit series with a slate of new, original and recurring programs scheduled to launch in October and November 2019 and in first quarter of 2020.  The rapidly growing network continues to draw notable creators to develop unfiltered scripted and unscripted original programs. This season, the network’s superfans can tune in to The Real Blac Chyna, season two, as well as Joseline’s Cabaret, Dr. Blackson and the gritty soccer series Shadow Players from international superstar athlete Ronaldinho.

Zeus will also premiere the original reality series Tokyo Toni’s Finding Love ASAP, a dating show featuring Blac Chyna’s mom, a controversial standout from the network’s #1 docu-series “The Real Blac Chyna” which made its debut this May.  The Real Blac Chyna has generated tens of millions of views from its clips, episodes and social content to become the first project to receive a season two order from the network.

“We are absolutely thrilled to continue our relationship with Blac Chyna and to bring Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Joseline Hernandez and other exciting new content creators and their stories to Zeus,” said President and CEO, Lemuel Plummer. “In less than a year, we’ve seen substantial growth in subscriptions to our platform, plus fan comments and interaction with our shows.  Our viewers are captivated by these popular creators and we are committed to be their destination for fresh, provocative content.”

Since launching in 2018, Zeus has aggregated premium content and stars and is positioned among the top 25% of OTT services, based on its number of paying subscribers.  In 2019 alone, the network has tripled in size.

The upcoming Zeus programs feature varying themes including sports, romance, and comedy from popular creators.  Here’s what’s in store for fans to consume beginning this October:

Dr. Blackson – Premiere October 13, 2019 

The Therapist” has nothing on “Dr. Blackson” …as in the unfiltered and unbothered comedian, Michael Blackson.  Have issues in the bedroom, with body image, or your sexual orientation?  Come to Dr. Blackson and he will fix it. But is he kind, gentle, and caring? Hell, no. Get your mind right or else, modasucka! This series is the natural next step for Michael’s hugely popular ‘advice column’ on his Social Media pages, where random people write to Michael with their problems, then await his usually outrageous advice.

Tokyo Toni’s Finding Love ASAP – Premieres November 10, 2019 

Some people are raw and some are real — but none are more raw AND more real than Blac Chyna’s mother Tokyo Toni (as seen on The Real Blac Chyna and E! series Rob & Chyna).  And now, Tokyo is looking for the right man to join her in setting the world on fire in her new dating reality/competition series.  Inspired by her online antics and commanding personality, watch as a varied group of eligible bachelors vie for Tokyo’s attention while bringing the laughs, tension, drama and suspense to the party.  Each week, with the help of her friend and co-host Lyrica Garrett (Love and Hip Hop), Tokyo will eliminate one man after another as she looks to find her next ex-husband…ASAP!

Joseline’s Cabaret (Working Title) – Premieres 2019

Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta superstar alum, Joseline Hernandez, is back! This time, the “Puerto Rican Princess” is in her hometown of Miami to help revitalize a struggling gentleman’s club and create a sensual traveling cabaret featuring her own original music.  First though, she needs to get the dancers at the club in order…and some of the girls aren’t quite ready to fall in line just yet. We know Joseline can boss up, but can she also be diplomatic and motivating enough to handle her biggest professional challenge to date — all while juggling her life as a mother, fiancé, mogul and music artist?

The Real Blac Chyna, Season Two – Premieres First Quarter 2020

The Zeus Network’s number one hit series returns — and if you thought the first season was explosive, wait until you see the fireworks in store for season 2! Watch as internationally known celebrity Blac Chyna, works to rebuild the team that crumbled around her, pursue further healing with her mother, tend to her expanding business empire and budding music career, and look to get back into the dating scene.  The Real Blac Chyna is back and letting the audience continue to witness her successes and struggles as a mother, friend, daughter and businesswoman in the most real and authentic docu-series out today.

Shadowplayers – Premieres First Quarter 2020

Detailing the dangerous world of underground soccer in the not too distant future, this gritty and exciting new scripted series is executive produced by Brazilian soccer superstar Ronaldinho (2002 World champion and 2006 Champions League winner with Barcelona) and Emmy-nominated director Jeffrey Elmont. Set against the backdrop of abandoned warehouses, factories and other urban wastelands, “Shadowplayers” introduces us to this no-holds-barred, modern gladiator world of gamblers in love with the raw beauty of the contests where passion and skill are everything, but rules are minimal.
