BET today announced second season pick-ups of original dramas Tyler Perry’s The Oval and Tyler Perry’s Sistas from Tyler Perry. The two series hold top spots as the #1 and #2 as new scripted cable series, respectively, for general market P18-49 & P2+.
Production of the original dramas is slated to start at Tyler Perry Studios on July 8, with premiere dates for both series forthcoming.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Tyler Perry and for the renewals of our two Wednesday night programming staples, The Oval and Sistas. BET is committed to investing in quality programming from top industry power players and giving viewers more of the content they love and expect from the brand across our platforms,” said Scott Mills, President of BET.
Tyler Perry’s The Oval tells the story of a family placed in the White House by people of power while also highlighting the personal side and everyday lives of the staff who run the inner workings of the nation’s most iconic residence.
Tyler Perry’s The Oval stars Ed Quinn, Kron Moore, Javon Johnson, Ptosha Storey, Vaughn Hebron, Teesha Renee, Paige Hurd, Daniel Croix Henderson, Lodric Collins, Ciera Payton, Walter Fauntleroy, Taja V. Simpson, Brad Benedict, Travis Cure, and Matthew Law.
Tyler Perry’s Sistas follows a group of single black females as they navigate their “complicated love life,” careers and friendship through the ups-and-downs of living in a modern world of social media and unrealistic relationship goals. The one-hour drama takes viewers on a roller coaster ride of emotions and hilarious moments that are the epitome of #squadgoals.
Tyler Perry’s Sistas stars KJ Smith, Mignon Von, Ebony Obsidian, Novi Brown, DeVale Ellis, Chido Nwokocha, Anthony Dalton, Brian Jordan Jr., and Kevin Walton.
Tyler Perry’s The Oval and Tyler Perry’s Sistas are executive produced, directed, and written by Tyler Perry. Michelle Sneed also serves as Executive Producer of the series for Tyler Perry Studios.
The series renewals land as BET Networks premieres the new half-hour original comedy, Tyler Perry’s Bruh on BET+. Perry’s second original series on the premium streaming service follows four longtime friends as they navigate life and relationships through the strength of their brother-like bond. In a society where relationships between men of color are often misjudged and misrepresented, the series embraces male vulnerability versus hypermasculinity.
Tyler Perry’s Bruh joins Mr. Perry’s first series on the service, Tyler Perry’s Ruthless, a spin-off of the hit television series Tyler Perry’s The Oval. Streaming now on BET+, Tyler Perry’s Ruthless tells the riveting story of a woman named Ruth, who kidnaps her young daughter to join her in the dark underworld of a fanatical religious cult.
New episodes of Tyler Perry’s Bruh and Tyler Perry’s Ruthless launch every Thursday on BET+.
