BET’s latest scripted sitcom ‘Let’s Stay Together’ shooting in Atlanta

Atlanta remains a beehive of TV production activity. The latest: BET’s newest scripted comedy “Let’s Stay Together.”

The sitcom will be paired this fall with the revival of “The Game,” last seen as the CW.

There are no big names in the show but Queen Latifah’s production company is behind it and one of the executive producers (Jacque Edmonds Cofer) has worked on “Martin,” “Living Single” and “Moesha.” Kim Fields (”Living Single”) is directing some of the episodes.

The show is being shot at Turner Studios. I hope to make a set visit soon.

The last time BET tried scripted comedy was “Somebodies,” which was shot in 2008 in Athens. It didn’t do particularly well and was not renewed.

Well, I hope the Queen is investing in a good venture. Can’t wait to see it.

I really liked ‘Somebodies’, but I was apparently by myself. Hopefully this show will do better. Too many reality shows out there.

I’ve never heard of “Somebodies”. I guess you were the only one Chris.

Chris, you are not alone. I enjoyed “Somebodies” too. I think networks are going with realty programming because it is less expensive to produce. With the exceptions of “Survivor” and
“The Amazing Race” realty shows are easy to crank out and it gives networks quick cash flow.

Should be a great show! I believe that Erica Hubbard from Lincoln Heights is on this show. She is an awesome actress. Extremely versatile and fun to watch. Cant wait to see it!

Somebodies was good

Somebodies was a good show that didn’t get a lot of publicity/advertising. In turn the reason it wasn’t brought back.

This show should be awesome. Bert Belasco is a wonderful actor and part of an amazing cast. These are truly talented and “beautiful” people. Can’t wait for January!

looking forward to seeing it. but Somebodies was great, atypical for BET. the reviews were great but BET didn’t advertise/market like networks do with a new show praised by notable critics. In reality, reality tv is killing tv…well at least the creative side of tv.
