BET tweeted, “@KellyRowland is on a mission to find the next big female R&B group on #CHASINGDESTINY coming to BET…” and she confirmed with, “So excited!”
Basically, Kelly will be searching out the next big female superstar group to make their mark in a dog-eat-dog music industry. These females will be guided by Rowland to find their voice as entertainers. Congrats, Kelly. Good luck, ladies!
Since “The Game” is on its final season, Brandy has decided to stick around with the BET family for a romantic comedy as well! She’ll be starring in “Zoe Moon,” another new addition to BET’s programming line-up. “Zoe Moon,” who’s played by Brandy is about a “live-out-loud newly single mom embarking on a new life and career as a fledging cosmetics mogul.” This is Brandy’s first leading series since “Moesha.”
Other shows that are scheduled to debut on the network is DeSean Jackson: Home Team, which according to the LA Times is a “reality series featuring Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson as he deals with life on and off the field, and the core of women surrounding him, including his “momager” Gayle, his sister and assistant A’Dreea, his publicist Denise and his new girlfriend, Kayla.
And they are bringing back “Punk’d”, ya’ll!!! BET might just be where it’s at again!!
Both “Chasing Destiny” and “Zoe Moon” as well as the other shows are a part of Hill’s attempt to lead more original scripted programming. Warm wishes and good luck on the new journey, ladies!
