Could “Single Ladies” get a second act on BET?
AlwaysAList.com has since learned exclusively that producers of the series have began putting out feelers with other networks to see if there could be interest in picking up the show.
We reached out to reps at BET about the possibility of them acquiring the show and they were coy on the matter.
“We can not comment at this time,” is all a network publicist would tell us. They did not deny they were interested when pressed further.
“Single Ladies” was cancelled by VH1 because the network is apparently going in a different direction.
The show, which also featured actors D.B. Woodside, Terrell Tilford, Harold House Moore, and Travis Winfrey, consistently landed solid ratings that grew each year.
Season one of “Single Ladies” premiered with 2.9 million viewers, season two had 3.2 million and season three boasted 3.5 million. Despite its success and growth, VH1 is ended the show.
If BET were to pickup the show, it would be the second show they acquired after another network cancelled it. After the CW Network cancelled “The Game” in 2009, BET picked the show up in 2010 and re-launched the series in January 2011.
