Last month, Nelly did an interview and said that the hilarious skit from the 2011 BET Awards, The Real Husbands of Hollywood was coming to a TV near you.
Well, Nelly ain’t never lie. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the skit has been reworked and will now be an improv show mixed with scripted material. The cast members for the show are confirmed as Kevin Hart, Nelly, Nick Cannon, Robin Thicke, Duane Martin, Boris Kodjoe, and Faizon Love. So what network has snagged the sure to be hit? None other than BET!
BET is making sure that the show will be a success and has wrangled famed director Stan Lathan to direct the project. I can’t wait to set my DVR for the show. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a riot.
In related news, Kelly Rowland has just landed a new pilot on BET. “What Would Dylan Do” (working title), will see Rowland play an L.A. based relationship blogger who lives with her best friend, Cherise (Gabrielle Dennis, The Game), and wealthy and divorced roommate, Brooke (Melanie Liburd, Strike Back).
It seems like BET is making major moves this year. Both of these shows sound like winners to me! Salute BET!
