The Viacom cabler also confirmed it will pick up the second season of hip-hop drama “The Breaks,” which is moving from sibling channel VH1, and produce new episodes of VH1’s dance-set drama “Hit the Floor.”
Bet Networks chairman-ceo Debra Lee was scheduled to unveil the programming news Thursday at the cabler’s upfront presentation in New York. Bet also confirmed that its struggling spinoff channel Centric will be rebranded Bet Her.
“Bet’s global influence is stronger than ever and we are continuing to expand beyond the television screen to impact our audience – and the world – across multiple platforms,” Lee said. “Some networks offer reach and some engagement, but no other network offers reach, engagement, culture, lifestyle and influence.”
