Remember LAST YEAR we reported that the CLASSIC Eddie Murphy film, ‘Boomerang’ was getting a REBOOT!
Well BET just OFFERED the FIRST TEASE of the new SERIES coming in February!
The sequel to the classic features rising star Tequan Richmond, whom many know as Drew, from the hit series Everybody Hates Chris. Also set to star alongside Richmond is Tetona Jackson, Leland Martin, and social media influencer Lala Milan.
Other notable recurring cast members include rapper and Mr. Robot actor, Joey BadA$$, Chicago rapper Dreezy, Atlanta’s Kimberly Inge, RJ Walker, Paula Newsome, and newcomer Kimberly Hall. Halle Berry and Lena Waithe EXECUTIVE PRODUCE the series that is described as a SEQUEL to the 1992 movie.
Based on the film of the same name, the series picks up roughly 25 years after the 1992 theatrical release. The subversive comedy follows the children of the original cast as they try to balance making their mark on the professional world while navigating the personal struggles of young professionals.
Boomerang follows the lives of Jacqueline Boyer’s son (Richmond) and Marcus and Angela Graham’s daughter (Jackson) as they try to step out of their parents’ shadows and make a legacy of their own.
With Berry and Waithe at the helm and these PROMISING new STARS on the RISE, this show should be a HUGE SUCCESS! Remember where you heard that FIRST!
