TV One’s ‘R&B Divas’ has it’s branches in Los Angeles and Atlanta. Sources say creator, Phil Thornton, is searching to extend the ‘R&B Divas’ branch all over the country started with New York.

Below is what Thornton said to ThatGrapeJuice durign an interview below.
“We’ve talked about branching out into new cities but I’m satisfied with Atlanta and L.A. because those are very music based cities,” said Thornton. “There are a lot of divas in NYC and I’d love to skew it younger if we moved there so I’d love to include more emerging ladies like Tiara Thomas, Elle Varner and a more established artist like Ashanti. there are so many things we could do with the show out there. Right now, I’ve been working on a new pilot and I hope to announce its pickup date soon.”
