E! Entertainment reality docu-soap "Candy Girls" follows the lives of women trying to make it as "eye candy" in A-list hip hop music videos.

Some call them video girls, some call them video royalty, but when the biggest names in music are looking for Hollywood's hottest eye candy, these are the women they call. You've seen "Candy Girls" featured in music videos with the likes of Kanye, Outkast, Will Smith, Jay-Z and Three 6 Mafia, but don't let their supporting roles fool you – these women are anything but background players. In fact, to reach the career pinnacle of appearing in "A-list" music videos and gain access to the world of superstars, private jets and exclusive parties, you need to be able to play the game as well as you look.

To add more chaos to this competitive world, the stage keeps changing. Now that every aspect of a superstar's life defines their image, the casting process goes far beyond the traditional video set. Musicians need to live their image and that includes surrounding themselves at all times with the beautiful "Candy Girls" who are often featured in their videos. However, like runway models, "Candy Girls" know they need to get in early and make their money fast before time takes away the looks that make them so successful. To survive in this fleeting and mysterious world, you need to be much more than eye candy…you need to be a "Candy Girl." E! gives viewers a never-before-seen look inside the explosive and sexy world of some of the most successful and desirable hip hop video divas and uncovers just how cutthroat and competitive their lives really are.

"This series introduces E!'s entertainment-obsessed viewers to an aspect of the industry that has not previously been revealed," said Lisa Berger, Executive VP, Original Programming and Series Development, E! Entertainment Television. "While these women may be recognized for their sexy personas, viewers will find there is much more to them than meets the eye. With cut-throat attitudes, strong opinions and an unapologetic passion for luxury goods, these music industry divas are sure to create an exciting and dramatic series."

"Candy Girls" follows Danielle, who has built her company "Bella" into one of the premiere talent agencies for the music industry's casting needs. Every woman who wants to break into this industry knows Danielle is the best in the business and holds the key to the biggest jobs. She is armed with two women in her inner circle who help keep her organized and on task: Kysha and April. Kysha is her best friend and assistant, whose newness to the industry often leads her to getting played by the game. Danielle has taken her under her wing and works overtime to teach her the system, but Kysha's new romantic relationship is starting to affect her performance at work and create problems between her and her boss. April is a professional celebrity stylist who has hustled her way to the top during her ten years in the industry, styling over 100 music videos for such big names as Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Bow-Wow. She is a single mother, raising a son she had with model Tyson Beckford and must juggle that role with her successful job in the industry. As the self-proclaimed "token white girl," she is Danielle's eyes and ears when Danielle can't be on set and keeps a close eye on the talent.

"Candy Girls" tracks Danielle's efforts to manage some of the most sought-after women in the industry as they navigate a harsh and highly-competitive landscape. Her talent has formed a tight crew – they are all friends first, but at the end of the day it's about getting paid and these women must balance their friendships when competing for the same opportunities. Adding to the pressure is that these women know full well that they have limited time to make a big splash in this industry before times take its toll on their looks and bodies.

For Danielle, between negotiating deals, entertaining famous clients, stomping out fires and doing reconnaissance on her girls, her hectic, non-stop lifestyle has her on the go 24/7. This year she will be sending her talent to events like the Grammy Awards, the Super Bowl, Magic Convention, NBA All Star Weekend, album release events and music video shoots for all the major labels. Through it all, Danielle must manage the lives and attitudes of her stunningly-beautiful divas –– working overtime to keep them out of trouble and make sure they are successful on the job.

"Candy Girls" is produced by the award-winning production company Good Clean Fun ("Run's House," "Life of Ryan") in association with Coalition Media. Jason Carbone, Leah Landon and Troy Carter serve as executive producers, and Sarah Kane is co-executive producer.
