BET Renews Games People Play


BET Networks has greenlit a second season of Games People Play from Edmonds Entertainment.

“BET is home for lovers of black content that engages and entertains, and Games People Play’s first season over-delivered with a plotline that grips from episode one through the finale,” said Scott Mills, the president of BET Networks.

Starring Lauren London, Sarunas J. Jackson, Parker McKenna Posey, Karen Obilom and Jackie Long, the series is executive produced by Tracey Edmonds of Edmonds Entertainment, Angela Burt-Murray and Vanessa Middleton, who serves as showrunner. Season one was the number one new scripted cable series in 2019 among African-Americans 18-49. It is based on the book Games Divas Play by Angela Burt-Murray.

“We are thrilled to return and be able to give our fans more of the sexy, twisted, and unique storytelling that they enjoy and expect from every episode of Games People Play,” added Edmonds. “Our characters will continue to surprise and ignite in season two. I am grateful to Scott Mills for his continued support of our show and its vision.”
