Last month, Tyler Perry premiered two new shows on BET, ‘Sistas’ and ‘The Oval.’ Now, with ‘The Oval’ becoming the No. 1 new drama on cable, BET has now announced that Tyler Perry will be bringing two more shows to its streaming platform BET+.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The first show coming to BET+ is Tyler Perry’s show, “Bruh.” This series will center around a group of Black men in their thirties as they delve into the dating scene, their careers, and friendship. The show takes place in a modern-day society and will touch base on stereotypes African American men face.
The second show coming to the streaming platform is Perry’s “Ruthless,” which is a spinoff of “The Oval.” This series follows a woman who is compelled to be civil with an obscene religious sex cult in an attempt to free herself and her daughter.
In a statement, Perry expressed his gratitude to his fans and his excitement for his future at BET, stating, “I’m so grateful for the millions of fans who have been watching the new shows on BET. And this is only the beginning. I’m excited to bring these two new dynamic series to the BET Plus family and continue to tell stories of high stakes drama with emerging talent.”
The shows are just a taste of what’s to come with Tyler Perry and his multi-year content partnership deal with ViacomCBS. Fans of the megaproducer can also expect a holiday special at BET and a live-action family comedy series coming to Nickelodeon starring 10-Year-Old rapper Young Dylan, who is most known from being featured on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’
President of BET Networks, Scott Mills spoke highly of the Viacom networks partnership with Tyler Perry, stating, “Our landmark with Tyler Perry is off to a fantastic start with the breakout success of ‘The Oval,’ the number one new scripted series on cable, and ‘Sistas.’”
Both shows are set to premiere in 2020.
