According to our sources, BET is moving into unprecedented territory with several new and upcoming shows with several key actors who are known in the African American community as icons; and it seems that the first one up is actor Morris Chestnut!
We hear that Chestnut, who recently completed roles in Kick Ass 2 and Best Man Holiday, just closed a development deal with the network! It includes a starring vehicle for a show which he will star AND develop while also developing other upcoming projects with the network.
This is not new territory for Chestnut as he recently was one of the producers on the hit film Takers (which starred Idris Elba and Michael Ealy) and he also Executive Produced the film Not Easily Broken which he also starred with Taraji P Henson.
No word yet on what the shows are in development or the other projects, but stay tuned as this story is developing!
