'Games People Play' Renewed For Season 2 At BET

Games People Play has been renewed for a second season at BET, Shadow And Act has learned.

The first season of the show, which is based on Angela Burt-Murray’s book, Games Divas Play, starred Lauren London, Sarunas J. Jackson, Parker McKenna Posey, Karen Obilom and Jackie Long. It followed “a desperate basketball wife trying to protect her family, a tenacious journalist struggling to rebuild a tarnished career, and a scandalous groupie looking to become a  star, who all find it is murder trying to stay on top.”

BET says that the cast for the second season will be announced at a later date.

“BET is home for lovers of black content that engages and entertains, and Games People Plays’s first season over-delivered with a plotline that grips from episode one through the finale,” says Scott Mills, President of BET Networks. “Tracey Edmonds, Angela Burt-Murray and Vanessa Middleton have been great partners on Games People Play and we’re proud to continue our relationship, bringing our viewers the compelling programming they expect from our brand.”

“We are thrilled to return and be able to give our fans more of the sexy, twisted, and unique storytelling that they enjoy and expect from every episode of Games People Play,” says Tracey Edmonds, EP/CEO of Edmonds Entertainment.  “Our characters will continue to surprise and ignite in season two.  I am grateful to Scott Mills for his continued support of our show and its vision.”

The show is executive produced by Tracey Edmonds of Edmonds Entertainment, Angela Burt-Murray and Vanessa Middleton (who is also showrunner).
