MTV’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” reboot will premiere this summer and reportedly focus more on “the aspirational lives of the elite boss women who have built their empires in Atlanta. It will follow a more docu approach to storytelling, focusing on the nuances of what it takes for these women to juggle their careers, relationships, aspirations, as well as the posh parties and celebrations which bring them all together.”

As for the other “Tuesday Night Takeover” programs, “MTV Couples Retreat” airs 9/8c and features six celebrity couples testing their love in Las Vegas by getting out of their comfort zones to understand more about each other. “From ziplining through the Vegas Strip, survivalist training in the wilderness with an expert ninja survivalist, trapezing with former Cirque du Soleil performers, to herding cattle and untamed bulls, the activities will challenge the couple on a different level,” according to the description.
And “Caught in the Act: Unfaithful,” premiering this summer, features host Tami Roman continuing to help people catch their partners cheating. After the investigation, the victim can choose between two options: “to team up with their partner’s other lover or take them both down in an undercover ambush.”
All “Tuesday Night Takeover” shows are executive produced by Antoinette Media.
“On the heels of launching Antoinette Media with Lashan Browning, we’re thrilled to continue fueling our robust unscripted slate of hits on MTV and introduce new audiences to the cultural phenomenon ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ as well as fan favorites like ‘Couples Retreat’ and ‘Caught in the Act: Unfaithful,’” said SHOWTIME and MTV Entertainment Studios Chief Creative Officer and President of Content Nina L.
