BET has greenlit a new series from producer/director Tyler Perry dubbed Sistas, the network said Thursday.
The series, the second show created under BET owner Viacom’s exclusive multi-year partnership deal with Perry, follows a group of single black females from different walks of life who bond over why they are single, according to BET.
Sistas, which will premiere later this fall, stars J Smith, Ebony Obsidian, Mignon Von, and Novi Brown. Principal photography for Sistas is underway at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.
BET in June announced the development of Perry’s first original series for the network, The Oval.
