Stadium, D.C.’s glitzy strip club in Northeast, is about to get its first primetime national spotlight.
The venue is set to be front and center of a reality show called “Strip Club Queens.” The show, to debut in the fall, will be in the tradition of years of female-dominated reality shows including Real Housewives, Basketball Wives and even Mob Wives. But for this new drama, the main characters will be none other than D.C. dancers.
“You’re not going to see a bunch of fighting,” says Delmond Newton, the show’s creator. “You’re really going to be able to say, ‘Now I know why girls strip.’”
The show will follow one woman’s struggle to open a salon, the life of a recovering addict and one dancer who supports her boyfriend, mom and baby while living in a trailer park. In total, five strippers and one waitress from Stadium Club will be featured on the show.
“What we decided to do was to create a show that focuses on their lives outside of the club,” says Newton.
His production company, Newton Media Group, began filming the show in the spring and will continue taping through August. Newton plans for “Strip Club Queens” to be the first of a franchise that will include “Strip Club Queens of Miami” and “Strip Club Queens of Houston.”
He says a major network has picked up the show but can’t yet reveal which one. (Our money’s on this one.)
Managers at Stadium have not returned requests for comment.
