The ex-wives of Will Smith, Eddie Murphy, Jose Canseco, R. Kelly and Prince will star in their own docuseries for U.S. network VH1, slated for a summer premiere.

Produced by Shed Media US and Lynch-Dyson Entertainment, the 10 x 60-minute Hollywood Exes (w/t) will feature Nicole Murphy (ex-wife of Eddie Murphy), Jessica Canseco (ex-wife of Jose Canseco), Sheree Fletcher (ex-wife of Will Smith), Mayte Garcia (ex-wife of Prince), and Andrea Kelly (ex-wife of R.Kelly).

The series will follow the five women, who have been friends for years, according to the network.

“These extraordinarily strong women adjusted to and endured a lot while their ex-spouses won fame and fortune defining pop culture for that moment,” said Jeff Olde, EVP of original programming and production at VH1. “Now these women must re-invent themselves again, stepping out of the long shadows cast by their famous husbands and supporting each other as they define the next stage of their lives – this time on their own terms.”

Hollywood Exes is co-executive produced by Shed Media US’ Jen O’Connell, Nick Emmerson, Lisa Shannon and Lamar Damon, while for Lynch-Dyson Entertainment, Vernon Lynch and Jeff Dyson serve as executive producers. Jill Holmes, Tom Huffman and Jeff Olde are executive producers for VH1.
