CLICK HERE FOR “MONEY POWER RESPECT” SUPERTEASE

NEW YORK, NY (September 13, 2016) – WE tv introduces a new set of elite, high powered female entertainment attorneys with the premiere of “Money. Power. Respect. on Thursday, October 13th at 10 p.m.  ET/ PT.   From the executive producers of “Love & Hip Hop,” this 6 episode, one-hour, New York-based docu-series follows a group of gorgeous and ambitious professional women who help each other, use each other-and sometimes throw each other under the bus-in their efforts to get ahead.   Whether dealing with failed partnerships, cheating boyfriends, stolen clients and back-stabbing best friends, these driven women use the tricks of their legal training to always get what they want.

Viewers will get a rare and intimate look inside the glamorous yet cutthroat world of the Hip Hop music industry, and experience what it’s like to turn artists into stars and negotiate lucrative deals for their clients and themselves.   The women mix fun with pleasure as professional lines are drawn and personal alliances are forged.  They attend exclusive events and mix with music’s top power movers– all the while struggling to balance their ambitions, love lives, checkbooks and friendships. “Money. Power. Respect.” will air on WE tv on Thursdays at 10:00 pm ET/ PT on WE tv.

The dynamic attorneys of Money. Power. Respect. aren’t afraid to take on the professional challenges and personal drama that come with being successful professionals at the top of their game. WENDY CREDLE considers herself the O.G. of the group, but the younger generation of attorneys are determined to steal her crown and take over her throne.  KENDELL KELLY has just arrived in New York, and she’s already dealing with a cheating boyfriend, and a rival attorney who wastes no time throwing shade on her emotional stability.  DANA WHITFIELD is a litigator who intends to expand into artist management, but her opinionated husband doesn’t want his “Queen” to be mixing with “grimy” music industry wannabees.  KELLY SHAPIRO is the newest legal shark in New York City, where she’s making power moves and taking a bite out of anyone who gets in her way.  NAKIA THOMAS wants to make strong corporate alliances to enhance her fashion brand, and has no trouble switching allegiances between her friends to be on the winning side.  TIFFANY BALLARD is the attorney who currently has the hottest roster of artists and producers—a self-proclaimed “sophist-ratchet,” she keeps it real and loves calling out the others on their bourgie “fakeness.”  And then there’s the women’s mentor… ED WOODS.  Ed is a legend in the world of entertainment law, but finds it hard to stay above the fray when the group’s dramatics ignite.
