First up from Tyler Perry in his multi-year deal at BET is scripted White House drama “The Oval,” starring Ed Quinn, Kron Moore, Paige Hurd and Daniel Croix Henderson. Written, directed and executive produced by Perry, “The Oval” will introduce viewers to the new first family moving into the White House. The logline: This picture-perfect couple has it all! Money, status, and pure bliss flank the Mr. & Mrs. However, behind closed doors, they are anything but flawless. With lies, cheating and messy mayhem running amuck, in the new scripted series, we see next level corruption up close and way too personal, directly from the White House.
Perry is also shepherding another drama, two comedies, and a live holiday special for BET, with the expectation that he will produce over 75 hours of original content for BET over the next year.
