“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 and CEO of BET Media Group. “Our programming partnership with Tyler—undoubtedly 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 ten 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.”

Perry said, “Scott Mills and his team at BET have been incredibly supportive throughout our time working together, and 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.”
