Russell Simmons and Oxygen are teaming up for a new reality show, “The Russell Simmons Project.”
The behind-the-scenes series focuses on the women who assist Simmons in running his successful business empire as well as his everyday life, Amy Introcaso-Davis, Oxygen’s senior VP of original programming and development, said in a statement yesterday.
“Russell Simmons is a fascinating man, and seeing his world through the eyes of his dream team, comprised of strong, passionate women, provides a unique experience for our viewers,” she said.
Simmons, recently named one of the “Top 25 Most Influential People of the Past 25 Years,” is a force in the entertainment and fashion worlds, as well as an entrepreneur, philanthropist and yogi.
“Throughout my career I have surrounded myself with people smarter than me,” said Simmons. “This show will let them shine and provide insight into how we build our empire from the inside out.”
“The Russell Simmons Project” is in development. No premiere date has been set.
