After months of speculation, BET officially announced that they would be picking up THE GAME for new episodes, which will begin to air in the fourth quarter of this year.
THE GAME – By popular demand, BET answers the prayers of Sabres fans everywhere. New episodes of THE GAME will be produced by and air exclusively on BET. After enjoying record ratings in syndication, THE GAME, created by Mara Brock Akil and executive produced by Kelsey Grammer and Salim Akil, will follow the lives of the fictitious San Diego Sabres–and the women who love them.SCHEDULED TO PREMIERE 4Q 2010
I can barely contain my excitement! My only hope is that the quality and original cast are retained from the original CW program. BET actually has some interesting shows coming up….including shows for choreographer Laurieann Gibson (BOOM KACK, Bad Boy, Making The Band) and pro skateboarder Terry Kennedy. The network also announced the return of BET NEWS, which will feature journalism legend Ed Gordon.
