tweeted a story about the deal between BET and "The Game" nearing its final stages. The show is on the verge of being resurrected. Here's a snippet from the article
The cable network is expected to announce at its upfront presentation this month that it is resurrecting the CW sitcom with original episodes.
The majority of the cast of "The Game," created by Mara Brock Akil, are expected to return.
Because the options on the actors had expired following the show's cancellation in May, BET had to negotiate new deals with them.
The network is expected to take lead in the production of the new episodes, with CBS Studios, which was behind "Game" when it was on CW, licensing the show to BET.
Also, "Game" is expected to have a new showrunner, Salim Akil, who will take over for his wife, Brock Akil.
Mara's husband Salim
will be in the head production seat when the show returns but the original cast is all slated to return. Mara
is working on other shows including being a lead production consultant for Courtney Cox's
hit show "Cougar Town". All those letters and petitions must have worked after all. Sweet.
