CONGRATS goes out to Grammy Award winning performers Toni Braxton and Queen Latifah. Both ladies have acquired major production deals with Lifetime.

According to VARIETY, Latifah will star in and executive produce a one-hour special titled U.N.I.T.Y. She will also executive produce the documentary Where Did the Women of Hip Hop Go?, which chronicles the rise of female rappers and their future in a male dominated industry.

Braxton’s production will air as part of Lifetime’s holiday programming, It’s a Wonderful Lifetime, at some point during November and December.

“Both Queen Latifah and Toni Braxton have been part of the Lifetime family for many years and its proven that our audiences love them as much as we do and we are excited they will be back on the network for even more,” said Tanya Lopez, EVP of movies, limited series & original movie acquisitions for Lifetime and LMN.

Both superstars have been involved with Lifetime productions. Latifah most recently appeared in Flint and is one of the executive producers of The Rap Game. Braxton most recently starred in Faith Under Fire and was the subject of the biopic Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart.
