Queen Latifah and BET are named defendants in a lawsuit accusing them of stealing the idea for the reality show, “From the Bottom Up.” The series debuted in 2016, airs on BET and produced by Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit. From the Bottom Up is a docu series following women who have experienced adversity after making bad choices and are dealing with the consequences of their actions.
Latosha Lee alleges the show is a rip-off of an idea she pitched to BET called Real Life Cinderella’s of Atlanta.The focus of her show was going to be about the daily lives of women who had gone through publicized scandals and were seeking redemption.
Do you think the premise of both shows is generic and the idea is one anyone could have come up with?
