Now, WE TV has released a teaser for the upcoming reality series by starring Sisters With Voices. The unscripted docu-drama, “SWV: Reunited,” is produced by eOne Entertainment and will debut on Wednesday Jan. 16, 2014 at 10pm.

“SWV: Reunited” stars singers Cheryl “Coko” Clemons, Leanne “LeLee” Lyons, and Tamara “Taj” George and chronicles the comeback of the successful R&B from the 1990’s as they attempt to regain their footing in the music business. The reality series will show the women rebuilding their careers after a breakup that had them on a 15-year hiatus, while also trying to balance their personal lives.

A product of the New Jack Swing era, SWV is best known for songs like “Weak,” “I’m So Into You,” “Anything,” “Right Here/Human Nature,” and “Rain,” among others.

The platinum-selling trio broke up in 1997 after releasing their third CD, “Release Some Tension” and a holiday album, “A Special Christmas” that year.

Lead singer Coko released a solo R&B CD, “Hot Coko” in 1999 that featured the hit single “Sunshine.” Additionally, she worked on several stage productions and released a Grammy-nominated Gospel CD, “Grateful.”

In 2011, the group signed a new recording contract with Mass Appeal Entertainment/eOne. In 2012, they released a single “Co-Sign” and their first album in 15 years, “I Missed Us.”

Earlier this year, SWV was nominated for a Grammy Award for their remake of Patti LaBelle’s “If Only You Knew,” which was featured on “I Missed Us.”
