T.I. and #BET Networks are teaming up for a new TV series called “The Grand Hustle”.
The new reality show will feature 16 male and female contestants who are battling against one another for a six-figure position on T.I.’s Grand Hustle business team.
“The Grand Hustle Empire is always expanding so, therefore, we needed to add a very talented, highly skilled executive to our team,” the rapper said. “It doesn’t matter if you got your hustle at Harvard or the hood, The Grand Hustle is about how you handle business and what you can do for the brand so I wanted to create a show that offers an equal playing field.”⠀⠀
The show will take place in #TI’s hometown of Atlanta, and the season will be made up of 12, one-hour episodes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Tip is one of the smartest most impressive businessmen I have ever met,” said executive producer Brian Sher. “His business acumen is second to none, and his entrepreneurial spirit is unmatched. I’m excited for the world to get a window into how Tip thinks and operates.”
Sher and Tip will executive produce the series together. The show is set to premiere July 19th at 10 p.m. EST on BET.
