Ray J is keeping it in the fam for an upcoming reality TV show–not his mistress-seeking dating series, but a newly inked venture set to costar family members, including sister Brandy.

In a recent interview with VIBE, Ray J revealed that he’ll be executive producing the show, but did not give an expected air date. The reality show is another collaboration with 51 Minds Entertainment, the company behind VH1’s For the Love of Ray J, which followed the multifaceted singer/actor/producer’s high jinks from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in a quest to find love.

“Putting my family on–they’ve been in the game before me so getting them together as one team, it’s going to be explosive and something special,” Ray J told VIBE. “People can kind of see where we’ve been and where we’re going and our connection together.” 

Ray J has previously joined forces with Brandy on an assortment of projects, including a role as her little cousin D-Money on Moesha. Their father Willie Norwood has enjoyed some success in the gospel music scene with his album Bout It peaking at No. 13 on the Billboard Gospel Chart back in 2001.

He’s paved his own way, too, with five studio albums and his For The Love of Ray J series, which begins its second season Monday (November 2).

Ray J is excited and optimistic about the future project he’ll embark on with his nearest and dearest. “I’ve had great success with my family in other things so I’m looking forward to it.” –Caroline Acosta with additional reporting by Jamal Munnerlyn
