Fans may recognize Mehgan James, who previously appeared as a main cast member on BBW season 4 in 2015. She’s also been on Bad Girls Club, Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, and Baddies ATL.

Basketball Wives originated in Miami in April 2010. Los Angeles-based spinoff Basketball Wives LA premiered in August 2011.

Both shows ran for five seasons. Then in 2017, VH1 announced the original series would be revived in Los Angeles, with the two shows being combined into Basketball Wives.

The franchise follows the daily lives of wives, girlfriends and exes of professional basketball players.

The Orlando version will debut this fall on VH1, with a specific air date to be announced later.

Basketball Wives: Orlando is produced by This Way Out Media and Shed Media.

Shaunie O’Neal is an executive producer along with Mark Seliga, Sean Rankine, Yessica Garcia, Melanie Collier Lodge, Tiffany Lea Williams, Angela Aguilera, and Mimi Blanchard.
