Monica Set To Host New VH1 Crime Series

Singer Monica has landed her own true-crime series.

The Grammy-winning R&B songstress responsible for hit records such as “Angel of Mine,” “So Gone,” “The Boy Is Mine,” and “Everything to Me” is the host of VH1’s new series, “Infamy: When Fame Turns Deadly.”

The eight-episode docu-series will examine instances of fame turning deadly. Each episode will take viewers through the motives and mystery surrounding these shocking crimes, told by the people closest to the case.

The first season will explore several notorious cases, including the murders of rising hip-hop star Young Greatness, who was gunned down in New Orleans, and NBA player Lorenzen Wright. Monica will also narrate the mysterious death of a runway model found in the bottom of a swimming pool and a famous Chicago radio DJ who was targeted by an unlikely suspect.

The series is produced by Emre Sahin, Sarah Wetherbee, and Kelly McPherson’s Karga Seven Pictures, the company responsible for MTV’s recent “True Life: Crime” and several other true-crime and unscripted shows for Discovery, Nat Geo, and A&E.

The show marks Monica’s return to unscripted television after the cancellation of VH1’s “T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle” following sex abuse allegations against show creator and rapper T.I. along with his wife Tiny. Before joining “Friends & Family Hustle,” Monica shared her family and career life with fans on her “Still Standing” reality show, which aired on BET. Unfortunately, the show only aired for one season.

“Infamy: When Fame Turns Deadly” will debut on June 7th.
