This summer, BET will premiere FRANKIE AND NEFFE, a spin-off of the Network's top-rated reality show KEYSHIA COLE: THE WAY IT IS, that intimately profiles the wildly entertaining mother and sister of R&B singer Keyshia Cole. The new reality series, premiering on Tuesday, August 25 at 10:00 p.m.*, chronicles the two as they strive to gain financial independence, while taking on the responsibilities of implementing and maintaining positive lifestyle changes, raising families, and handling the drama and men in their lives. Breaking away from R&B star Keyshia Cole proves to be more difficult than expected, and emotions run high, but BET viewers will be rooting for this captivating mother and daughter through it all.

FRANKIE AND NEFFE is an eight episode reality series executive produced by James DuBose of DuBose Entertainment for BET.
