The Quad canceled at BET-1

Welp…BET has canceled their scripted HBCU series, “The Quad” after 2 seasons.

Roland Martin, who made a guest appearance on the show, broke the news after receiving an email from the show’s co-creator and executive producer, Felicia Henderson.

According to her email, the show was axed because “the analytics didn’t support renewing a show with a budget of this size.”

Basically….the ratings sucked.

I wasn’t a huge fan of “The Quad,” but I tuned in every week to see Anika Noni Rose put in werk.
