Tyler Perry to Produce Programming For BET Media Group Through 2028

More Tyler Perry content programming is coming to BET. The BET Media Group has extended its relationship with the award-winning writer, director, producer, actor and playwright to continue bringing existing and new series to the network through 2028.

Perry and BET launched their collaboration in 2017. Since that initial union, he has produced over 700 hundred episodes of top-rated series for the brand. Under the new agreement, the multi-hyphenate will deliver hundreds of new episodes to the network and its outlets.

Over the past seven years, Perry has created a diverse collection of addictive series for BET Media Group, including Tyler Perry’s Sistas, Tyler Perry’s The Oval, Tyler Perry’s Assisted Living and more. On the network, he continued the success of his existing series, such as Tyler Perry’s House of Payne and Tyler Perry’s The Have and The Have Nots.

On BET+, his hit shows: Tyler Perry’s ZATIMA, Tyler Perry’s Ruthless, All The Queen’s Men and more will see new seasons as part of this multi-year deal featuring content, executive produced, directed, and written by Perry. In addition, Perry will continue to work with other showrunners to bring content to BET Media Grooup’s platforms, such as the recently premiered series Perimeter on BET+.

“I’m excited to continue bringing these stories to the screen. I’m grateful to our loyal audiences for watching week after week and engaging these stories,” Perry said in a statement.

“Tyler Perry is simply without rival as a creator of content that powerfully resonates with audiences across genres, formats, and platforms,” said Scott Mills, President & CEO of BET Media Group.

“Our programming partnership with Tyler—undoubtably the largest deal ever in the industry with a Black creator—has been hugely successful; delivering the number one series across all TV among Black audiences and five of the top 10 series on cable among Black viewers. We are thrilled to extend our extraordinary relationship with Tyler and to continue to be the home of the largest and most diverse collection of new Tyler Perry content for years to come.”

The BET Media Group is a unit of Paramount.
