First Wives Club is moving! Deadline reports the upcoming TV show will now premiere on BET instead of Paramount Network.
Based on the 1996 movie, the comedy series “follows Ari (Ryan Michelle Bathe), Bree (Michelle Buteau) and Hazel (Jill Scott), who band together after their marriages fall apart and find strength in their sisterhood — and of course a little revenge.”
First Wives Club was initially planned to debut on Paramount Network in January. Now, the series is being moved to BET with a premiere date unknown.
“We are thrilled that Tracy Oliver and Paramount Television’s First Wives Club will be coming to BET Networks. We have been big fans of Tracy, the project and its incredible cast all along. The concept she has for the series fits perfectly with our programming strategy of character-driven content anchored in the Black experience, and it aligns seamlessly with our core audience. We are currently working closely with Paramount Television on Boomerang and are excited to continue working with them on this project.”
