Three Of “Black&Sexy TV’s” Web Series Picked Up By BET

“Black&Sexy TV”, the digital network behind a slew of popular web series targeted towards black audiences, has been picked up BET. “RoomieLoverFriends”, “Hello Cupid” and “Sexless” will be coming to the television network starting with “RoomieLoverFriends” Wednesday, Sept. 16, at 11 p.m. ET/PT.

The show will air in four hour-long episodes over the next few weeks.

As previously reported  Numa Perrier, one of the creators of “Black&Sexy TV”, dished to BOSSIP about the digital network’s success.

Why do you think your shows connect with people from various backgrounds?

I think it’s because we’ve really figured out a way to extract humanity instead of caricature. Once you do that, once you make someone human then any human can relate to humanity. We’re so focused on doing something that’s real and stripped down. Everybody goes through real life things. […] Everybody has always thought that my costar Desmond [Faison]and I are a real couple. They’ve then been devastated to they find out that I’m actually a real couple with the director [Dennis Dortch]. We’re all very intimate like that. It’s all fun, we all enjoy it and we do it all for the art.

In addition to BET, “Black&Sexy TV” has a $7-per-month subscription service for access to original programming and also airs episodes on YouTube.

What do YOU think about this series coming to BET???
