As critical acclaim rolls in for Tyler Perry’s BET political drama, ‘The Oval,’ the media mogul is pushing the accelerator on its spinoff, ‘Ruthless.’
A BET+ original series, the show – top-lined by Melissa L. Williams alongside a cast rounded out by the likes of Matt Cedeño, Lenny Thomas, Yvonne Senat Jones, Baadja-Lyne Odums, and more – tells the story of “a woman named Ruth who kidnaps her young daughter to join her in the dark underworld of a fanatical religious cult. “
Set for a March 19 premiere, new episodes of the one hour drama will premiere every Thursday following the kickoff. Look below to see the trailer:
