EXCLUSIVE : Power star Naturi Naughton has been tapped as a co-lead opposite Eve in Queens , ABC 's hourlong pilot from Zahir McGhee , Sabrina Wind and ABC Signature. In Queens , written by McGhee, four estranged and out-of-touch women in their 40s reunite for a chance to recapture their fame and regain the swagger they had as the Nasty Bitches – their '90s group that made them legends in the hip-hop world. Naughton plays Jill, aka Da Thrill, a founding member of the Nasty Bitches — the group she formed with her high school friends. Da Thrill lived fast, had rugged rhymes and a troubling drug habit.
