Apparently there is life after death. At least in the entertainment world.
BET Networks announced Tuesday that it will broadcast the recently-axed series “Single Ladies” on Centric, BET Networks’ 24-hour music and entertainment network. This news comes about a month after VH1 announced it was canceling the Queen Latifah-produced show after three seasons. The third season finale aired on March 24.
“Single Ladies” debuted on VH1 in May 2011 and starred LisaRaye McCoy, Stacey Dash and Charity Shea. Denise Vasi joined the cast following Dash’s departure after the first season. The show’s billed as “modern, romantic comedy series is set in the world of Atlanta fashion, music, and celebrity as best friends share their differing views on love, sex and relationships,” according to a BET Networks press release.
“Single Ladies’” revival is part of an exclusive co-production deal with Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment to produce new content for the network. ”The Queen Latifah Show,” the syndicated daytime talk show that debuted last fall, will also begin airing in primetime on Centric (it began airing on BET on March 31). BET is currently airing the fourth season of Flavor Unit Entertainment’s scripted romantic comedy “Let’s Stay Together,” which premiered with 4.4 million viewers in 2011.
“We are thrilled to be working once again with Flavor Unit Entertainment and Queen Latifah. She does it all and we are happy to have her join us as a creative force as we continue to grow Centric into a premiere destination for African American women. We couldn’t be more excited about what’s ahead,” Debra L. Lee, BET Networks Chairman and CEO, said in a statement.
