*The rising black TV network Bounce TV has started production on its first original scripted sitcom “My Crazy Roommate.”
The series will be created and produced by Bent Outta Shape Productions’ Bentley Kyle Evans, best known for his work on “Martin” and “The Jamie Foxx Show.”
The show is a comedy about two young women, Brooke (Laila Odom) and Chole (Brittany Richards), from vastly different backgrounds who are forced to live together while on a crusade to find fame and fortune in Hollywood.
“My Crazy Roommate” will world premiere on Bounce TV, Tuesday, October 15 at 10p.m. ET.
“Bounce TV has quickly become a major new force and outlet for high-quality original programming for the vastly-underserved African American audience,” says Evans. “I’m thrilled to be working with the network and to have it be the home of My Crazy Roommate. I’m looking forward to success of the series and a long and fruitful relationship with Bounce TV.”
EVP Programming and Production, Bounce TV, Billy Hall commented, “We are aggressively moving forward with a robust slate of original programming and believe we are off to a terrific start working with Bentley and his team on My Crazy Roommate.”
