As reported by Gambit's Alex Woodward in June, Fuse TV teamed up with New Orleans bounce sensation Big Freedia for an upcoming reality show. Now Fuse TV has released the first trailer (seen above) and while earlier reports noted that Mr. Ghetto and Sissy Nobby would also be featured, it mostly focuses on the "Queen Diva" (and Gambit cover girl) Big Freedia.
The show, set to premiere October 2, follows Freedia and other New Orleans bounce artists as they try to push New Orleans bounce music into the mainstream. Considering all the hoopla this past weekend over a20-something pop star's sad attempt at "twerking", mainstream America may not be ready for Freedia and her crew. That doesn't make the show any less promising and we're looking forward to getting an up close view of of the self-proclaimed Queen of New Orleans bounce.
