PLEDGE YOURSELF TO VH1 FOR THE DEBUT OF “SORORITY SISTERS” SERIES PREMIERE MONDAY, DECEMBER 15 AT 9:00 PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY – December 11, 2014 – VH1 gives viewers a rare glimpse into the unique world of ATL Greek life with the series premiere of “Sorority Sisters”* on Monday, December 15 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. Nine women, who continue to honor the traditions and legacies of their respective sororities and chapters, all agree on one main principle: sisterhood doesn’t end after graduation, it’s for life. For these friends and sisters (or ‘sorors’) from celebrated historically black colleges and universities in Atlanta, strong ties to their organizations lead to fierce rivalries, but through thick and thin, these women stand united and share an unbreakable bond.
“Sorority Sisters” follows the lives of women from four different sororities. Since these ‘sorors’ are pledges for life, they are expected to continue their community work long after graduation. From long-awaited reunions, to managing the men in their lives, for these line sisters, it’s homecoming all across the ATL. These ladies have a lot at stake – their aspirations, reputations, livelihoods, friendships, and families – and the legacies of their sororities. “Sorority Sisters” premieres December 15 at 9PM on VH1.
“Sorority Sisters” is executive produced by Robert Horowitz for Juma Entertainment, and Toby Barraud, Stefan Springman, Mala Chapple and Jeff Grogan serve as executive producers for Eastern TV. Susan Levison, Nina L. Diaz, Vivian Gomez, Ken Martinez, and Daniel Blau Rogge are executive producers for VH1.
