Check out the newest teaser trailer from BET upcoming HBCU series, “The Quad.” It premieres on Monday, January 30.  As previously reported, “The Quad” (originally titled The Yard), follows an ambitious yet troubled Dr. Eva Fletcher, the newly-elected President of the fictional Georgia A&M University, who is charged with saving the prestigious HBCU from bankruptcy and her twenty-year marriage from crumbling. At the same time, she must manage to repair a tumultuous relationship with her rebellious only daughter while handling a diverse group of freshman who keep her hands full.

The show also features Jasmine Guy, Peyton Alex Smith, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Sean Blakemore as well as Larry Rhem and E. Roger Mitchell.  “The Quad” is executive directed by Rob Hardy and was shot on the campuses of Clark Atlanta University and Morehouse College.

Stay tuned for a future edition of “UPFRONT” where I will be chatting with a few of the show’s cast members.

Thanks Tambay and Shadow & Act!
