“The Next: 15” follows the lives of the five aforementioned stars + Tiffany “New York” Pollard (I Love New York) as they attempt to generate their next 15 minutes of fame. It’s a play on Andi Warhol‘s memorable quote, “In the future everybody will be world famous for fifteen minutes.” The show also comes from the creative mind of Carlos King, producer of “Hollywood Divas” and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
