Tracee Ellis Ross Talks ‘Reed Between the Lines’ & Why She Quit

Published: Saturday 25th Aug 2012 by TGJ

Much like ‘The Game’ switcheroos that left fans in the dark earlier this summer, many were shocked to learn that last week, Tracee Ellis Ross – lead star of BET‘s hit family comedy ‘Reed Between the Lines’ – made a very unexpected departure.  The show, recently renewed for its second season, was in gears to pick up where season 1 left off – chronicling love life of Ross’s character Dr. Carla Reed and husband Dr. Alex Reed (Malcolm Jamal Warner).

Initially mum on the topic, now Ross has taken to to shed light on what caused her sudden departure:

“It was that BET hadn’t decided if they were picking up the show yet or not,” says Ross. “During that time when they didn’t know, I was offered a really amazing pilot for NBC, and BET graciously allowed me to go and do it. But it’s not because I wanted to leave.”

The former Girlfriends’ actress continued by saying:

“I love Reed Between the Lines, I believe in it. There is a chance I’ll go back, always. There’s nothing weird about it.”

No premiere date has been set for season 2 of the show.  It is, however, expected to be one of many filling out BET‘s highly anticipated 2013 lineup.
