BET Networks has announced its ordering another Tyler Perry series and it is called Sistas!
This is the second series that Perry has under his multi-year content partnership deal with Viacom. The first series is The Oval.
Perry will write, direct and executive produce the comedy show Sistas which revolves around a group of single black women from different walks of life who bond over one common thread: Why am I single? Throughout the series, the women navigate their complicated love life status, careers and friendships through the ups and downs. The show is an hour long and takes the viewers and characters on a ride of emotions and shows what it is like living in the modern day world full of social media expectations and unrealistic relationship goals. Not only will the show have you feeling sorry for the women, it will also have you laughing out loud! Let’s be real, would this be a Tyler Perry series without any laughs?
Perry has already picked out his leading characters who will star as the women and they are -- KJ Smith, Ebony Obsidian, Mignon Von and Novi Brown.
Smith will play Andrea Barnes aka Andi who is a successful divorce lawyer and is the most sensible one of the group. Obsidian will play Karen Mott -- the owner of a hair salon who is TIREDT of being mistreated by men. Next up, we have Von playing Daniella King who is a ride or die for her girls. She is hilarious and fearless! Lastly, Brown will play Sabrina Hollins -- a bank teller who is stylish, smart and getting out her comfort zone.
We are super excited for the new comedy show Sistas! It will premiere THIS FALL on BET! Let us know what you think and if you will be watching!
