BET+ SETS THURSDAY, APRIL 7 FOR ORIGINAL SERIES “AMERICAN GANGSTER: TRAP QUEENS” SEASON 3

BET+ announces Thursday, April 7th, for the Season 3 launch of its original series AMERICAN GANGSTER: TRAP QUEENS. Narrated by rap legend Lil’ Kim, the true crime series returns with ten all-new episodes (five will be available on 4/7; the remaining five will be released at a later date). Premiere episodes will feature the stories of Kimberly Smedley, Candace Wilson, Gina Cabell, Shontel Greene, and Tonia Taylor; whose crimes range from black market butt injections to dark web identity theft, opioid pill mills and drug trafficking.

This season of TRAP QUEENS will offer epic, tragic and significant cautionary tales of women seduced by the allure of the underworld to become ultimate crime bosses. Viewers will witness their rise to a fantasy world of riches built on crime before an inescapable fall when they’re forced to face the severe consequences of their actions. The series portrays each Queen’s compelling story through first-hand accounts interwoven with archival footage and subtle recreations giving viewers a resonant and visceral experience.

“Trap Queens combines great storytelling with the real-life journeys of female crime bosses as they rise, fall, and seek redemption,” said Judge Greg Mathis, the series executive producer.

The “AMERICAN GANGSTER: TRAP QUEENS” series is executive produced by Arthur Smith and Frank Sinton of A. Smith & Co. Productions, alongside Daytime Emmy Award-winner and activist, Judge Greg Mathis. Delece James, and Jackson Nguyen also serve as executive producers. Andrena Hale and David Rock serve as co-executive producers.
