The shocking news about this is that both of these shows are new for BET in the scripted arena.
Under the deal with Flavor Unit, the company has come on board to produce its first scripted comedy project, titled Let’s Stay Together. The new show is written and exec produced by Jacque Edmonds Cofer, and is a romantic comedy starring Malinda Williams (of Showtime's Soul Food fame) and Bert Belasco. We hear that the show is set for a launch in January 2011.
But that's not it for the Flavor Unit, as we hear they will also produce the new film titled The Cookout 2, which is a sequel to The Cookout.
We hear that the new show The Game, which was created by Mara Brock Akil, is slated to re-launch in September 2011.
