Russell Simmons Joins Forces with Oxygen Network for Reality Show

Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons has joined forced with the Oxygen network to debut a new reality show, ‘The Russell Simmons Project.’ The series will give a behind-the-scenes look at the women who assist Simmons with his professional and everyday life.

“Russell Simmons is a fascinating man and seeing his world through the eyes of his dream team, comprised of strong, passionate women, provides a unique experience for our viewers,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, Senior Vice President of Original Programming and Development for Oxygen Media. “We are excited to team up with Russell on this project and shine the spotlight on his core group that are living the dream alongside him.”

While the show is being developed and produced by Simmons Lathan Media Group and Picture This Television, the Def Jam co-founder says his role on the show will be kept to a minimum. “Throughout my career I have surrounded myself with people smarter than me,’ Simmons said. ‘This show will let them shine and provide insight into how we build our empire from the inside out.”
