BET is currently taping a new HBCU series titled “The Quad” that is coming to the network at the beginning of 2017. The show was originally titled “The Yard” and stars stage, TV and film actress Anika Noni Rose.
As previously reported, the drama follows ambitious yet troubled Dr. Eva Fletcher, the newly-elected President of the fictional Georgia A&M University. Upon arriving, Eva is charged with saving the prestigious HBCU from bankruptcy and her twenty-year marriage from crumbling while managing a tumultuous relationship with her rebellious only daughter. A diverse group of freshman also promises to keep Eva’s hands full.
The show also features Jasmine Guy, Peyton Alex Smith, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Sean Blakemore and my ATL homies Larry Rhem and E. Roger Mitchell. “The Quad” is executive directed by Rob Hardy and is currently being shot on the campuses of Clark Atlanta University and Morehouse College.
