BET Cancels Plans For ‘The Breaks’ Season 2
These are the breaks…
BET has pulled the plug on their plans to air a second season of their Hip Hop drama, “The Breaks.”
In April, BET announced that it had picked up The Breaks for a second season and cheerleading drama Hit the Floor for a fourth season, with the latter coming more than a year after its third season wrapped on VH1.
But with BET’s recent pickups, the cabler no longer had a need for The Breaks. BET, which ranks as one of the six core brands that corporate parent Viacom is focusing on during its bid to revive the media giant, recently went straight to series with In Contempt, a procedural starring Erica Ash; The Quad; The Comedy Get Down;and Hit the Floor. Meanwhile, Being Mary Jane — its flagship scripted drama — will wrap its run with a two-hour series finale in 2018.
