African American-targeted network TV One has ordered its first scripted series, Love That Girl.

Bent Outta Shape Productions/Hazrah Entertainment will reprise the show, which had a four-episode special run on TV One in January. TV One has ordered a full season of 26 episodes (13 have already been produced). The series, from Bentley Kyle Evans (Martin, The Jamie Foxx Show), is targeted for a first-quarter 2011 debut.

The series stars Tatyana Ali (Fresh Prince of Bel Air, TV One Access) as a divorcee who returns home to Southern California to make a fresh start at life and a career, but one complicated by the arrival of her stand-up comedian brother (Alphonso McAuley).

Martin Lawrence will serve as executive producer, as well as appear in the series.
