After cancelling the promising series ‘The Quad‘, BET has set its sight on what it hopes will be ratings gold by putting plans in place to turn the movie ‘Boomerang‘ into a TV series.
The original movie starred Eddie Murphy, Grace Jones and Halle Berry and told the tale of a wealthy man who finds his world flipped upside down when he falls for a woman (Robin Givens) who gives him a taste of his romantic medicine.
BET‘s version of the story will take place almost thirty years later and see Murphy’s character revamped and transformed into a millennial male forced to juggle life, love, office and gender politics as he seeks love in all of the wrong places.
The company is yet to assemble the production team it will use to build the 10-part season.
‘Boomerang’ earned $131 million during its theatrical run.
