Bravo has greenlit a limited series chronicling the reunion of 90’s female R&B group Xscape, network officials said Thursday.

The four-part series, Xscape: Still Kickin’ It, will focus on the exploits of Xscape members Kandi Burruss, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and sisters La Tocha and Tamika Scott and they reunite for the upcoming 25 year anniversary of the group’s first album release.
