Remember last week when I posted an image of actors KJ Smith, Anthony Dalton and Kevin Walton and said that they were starring in Tyler Perry‘s new BET series? Well now I have all of the “deets” about the show and couldn’t be more excited.
SISTAS is the second one-hour original series that Mr. Perry is bringing exclusively to BET. (The first is one is The Oval and I’ve got something coming up on that too) Anyway, it features KJ Smith along with Ebony Obsidian, Mignon Von, and Novi Brown and follows a group of single black females from different walks of life who bond over their one common thread: why am I single? Viewers will get to watch these women navigate their “complicated love life” status, careers and friendship through the ups-and-downs of living in a modern world of social media and unrealistic relationship goals.
SISTAS will premiere this fall and principal photography is said to be underway in Atlanta at Tyler Perry Studios.
Check out the lead actresses below + their descriptions:
KJ SMITH will play ANDREA “ANDI” BARNES
The “common sense one of the group,” Andi is a successful divorce lawyer focused on taking her career to the next level. She is confident, driven, ambitious, clever, witty, and accomplished. She is reliable and the emergency call if ever needed.
EBONY OBSIDIAN will play KAREN MOTT
Owner of an up and coming hair salon, Karen is street-smart, head strong and independent. Tired of being mistreated by men, she is beginning to take a very close look at the relationships in her life. Karen is the “tough love” girl of her “sistas” group.
MIGNON VON will play DANIELLA “DANNI” KING Danni is the kind of woman who doesn’t hold back. She is the “ride or die” girl. Although she tends to be very involved with everyone else’s business but her own, she means well and has the best intentions. Danni is comical, fearless and marches to the beat of her own drum. She always has her girls’ back. Danni is the unbiased supporter of the group and works in customer service at the airport.
NOVI BROWN will play SABRINA HOLLINS Sabrina is stylish and smart. She works as a bank teller and is intrigued when one of her customers asks her out. Although she tends to be reserved and plays it safe, she goes against the grain and tries something new but doesn’t know how she feels about it. Sabrina is supportive of her girls and is the peacemaker of the group.
SISTAS is written, directed and executive produced by Tyler Perry. Michelle Sneed will also serve as Executive Producer of the series for Tyler Perry Studios.
