BET Renews 'The Game' & 'Together,' Picks Up 'Reed Between The Lines' To Series
By NELLIE ANDREEVA
No surprise here -- I hear BET has quietly renewed its blockbuster comedy series The Game for a fifth season. The cable network may hold the official announcement until its upfront presentation on Wednesday, but word is that Season 5 may be bigger than the 13-episode Season 4, probably for 22 episodes.
Also expected to get a renewal is BET's freshman comedy Let's Stay Together, which was recently paired with The Game. Meanwhile, I hear Reed Between the Lines, the network's comedy pilot produced by and starring former Girlfriends star Tracee Ellis Ross as a busy psychiatrist, is getting a series order. Malcolm-Jamal Warner co-stars in the project written by Kellie Griffin.
The Game, which was canceled by the CW in 2009, started off with staggering 7.7 million tuning in for its fifth-season premiere on BET and ended the season on a high note with 4.4 million viewers for the finale. This is the second comedy series canceled by a broadcast network to successfully relaunch on cable and land a renewal in the past couple of weeks, following the two-season pickup for Futurama at Comedy Central. Let's Stay Together, executive produced by Queen Latifah, averaged 2.9 million viewers.
