TPS added “Zatima” to its docket of original scripted BET series in production for 2022. Combining the names of fictional power couple “Zac” and “Fatima” from “Sistas”, actors Devale Ellis and Crystal Renee Hayslett will reprise their popular roles.
“We are continuing to strengthen our investment in quality programming, and our partnership with Tyler Perry has a proven track record of super-serving our audience,” said BET’s President and CEO, Scott Mills to Deadline. “We look forward to unlocking crossover viewership opportunities between our linear platform and our streaming service for one of our strongest series, ‘Sistas.’ With ‘Zatima’ joining our expanding roster of BET+ originals, BET is committed to giving viewers more of the compelling content they love and expect across our platforms.”
Let’s hope Zac stays true to Fatima in next year’s 10, one-hour episodes ordered to the BET+ streaming service. Stay tuned for updates.
