It looks like I can put my Strangè prayer cloth away because Halle Berry and Lena Waithe have signed on as executive producers of BET’s “Boomerang” series.
The 10-episode half-hour series, which is slated to premiere sometime next year, has been referred to as a reboot, but Lena says a reboot “can’t be done.”
This is less of a reboot and more of a continuation of the original story.
There’s no point in trying to remake a classic. It can’t be done.
So we want to create something fresh that speaks to a new generation. We hope people will come to the show with an open mind and ready to embrace the new world we’ve created!
Halle, who starred in the original 1992 classic film, along with Eddie Murphy and Robin Givens, shared her excitement about working with Lena.
I’m thrilled to team up with Lena on this project as she is without a doubt a leading voice of her generation and a trailblazer in her own right.
I’m truly excited to be a part of bringing this iconic and beloved film to the small screen.
Now, I’m really looking forward to this series because I know it’s in great hands!
