BET Readies ‘Boomerang’ Reboot

Published: Wednesday 11th Apr 2018 by David

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.

Details below…

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.

    I would love for a sequel movie at the theaters. The characters were not really created in a way for a stretched out tv series. There is not much character development that can take place with one-dimensional characters.

    The production budget better be substantial…Boomerang’s style can’t be recreated on a Paige Davis budget! Think Acrimony and less Madea Gets A Job lol
