New York, NY- Thursday, August 1, 2019 – BET Networks and Tyler Perry Studios announced today the new original dramatic comedy, “SISTAS,” the second series under Perry’s exclusive, multi-year content partnership deal with Viacom (NASDAQ: VIAB, VIA). Starring KJ Smith, Ebony Obsidian, Mignon Von, and Novi Brown, “SISTAS,” follows a group of single black females from different walks of life who bond over their one common thread: why am I single? In this bold new series, viewers watch these women navigate their “complicated love life” status, careers and friendship through the ups-and-downs of living in a modern world of social media and unrealistic relationship goals.

EBONY OBSIDIAN will play KAREN MOTT
Owner of an up and coming hair salon, Karen is street-smart, head strong and independent. Tired of being mistreated by men, she is beginning to take a very close look at the relationships in her life. Karen is the “tough love” girl of her “sistas” group.
MIGNON VON will play DANIELLA “DANNI” KING
Danni is the kind of woman who doesn’t hold back. She is the “ride or die” girl. Although she tends to be very involved with everyone else’s business but her own, she means well and has the best intentions. Danni is comical, fearless and marches to the beat of her own drum. She always has her girls’ back. Danni is the unbiased supporter of the group and works in customer service at the airport.
NOVI BROWN will play SABRINA HOLLINS
Sabrina is stylish and smart. She works as a bank teller and is intrigued when one of her customers asks her out. Although she tends to be reserved and plays it safe, she goes against the grain and tries something new but doesn’t know how she feels about it. Sabrina is supportive of her girls and is the peacemaker of the group.
“SISTAS” is written, directed and executive produced by Tyler Perry. Michelle Sneed will also serve as Executive Producer of the series for Tyler Perry Studios.”
