*BET is going the nostalgic route with a flood of new/old programming, thanks to a fresh off-net licensing deal with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.
Soon, the network and its sister station CENTRIC will begin airing reruns of “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” “Family Matters,” “Martin,” “The Jamie Foxx Show” and “The Wayans Bros.” to air on BET and CENTRIC.
The deal was unveiled today by Debra L. Lee, Chairman and CEO, BET Networks and Ken Werner, President, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.
“We’re thrilled to bring our audience more of the classic hits and award-winning actors they love on both BET and CENTRIC,” said Debra L. Lee, Chairman and CEO of BET Networks.
“A deal of this magnitude underlines the importance of securing well-known proven hit programming as a part of the foundation of a successful network schedule,” said Werner. “These series perform strongly across ethnic and age demos – maintaining their original fan bases while consistently being discovered by new audiences.”
