The group of young lesbian friends will star in a new reality television show set in the Tampa Bay area.

Amazon Studios greenlit Tampa Baes, an eight-episode docuseries based on the thriving LGBTQ+ scene around the area. The series is from 3 Ball Productions, the same company behind the first 11 seasons of The Biggest Loser.

“Always ready for an adventure or a good party, this group of loyal friends — and sometimes more than friends — is ambitious and unapologetic while constantly battling stereotypes and labels,” said the Amazon Studios press release posted Monday. “With all eyes on these fun-loving women at this pivotal moment in their personal and professional lives, there’s not a challenge or hot-button issue they won’t tackle, even if it means getting real with each other.”

The Baes include Ali Myers, Nelly Ramirez, Shiva Pishdad, Jordan Whitley, Marissa Gialousis, Summer Mitchell, Cuppie Bragg, Brianna Murphy, Haley Grable, Melanie Posner, Olivia Mullins and Mack McKenzie.

“Working on this show has been an incredible experience, and as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I’m thrilled this type of series can exist in the premium streaming space,” said showrunner Melissa Bidwell in the release.

“Viewers everywhere will be able to relate to them in one way or another, and I can’t wait for the world to fall in love with our Tampa Baes!”

Stream Tampa Baes on Prime Video this fall.
