TV One Orders First Scripted Series

'Love That Girl' to debut in early 2011 10/15/2010 12:04:11 PM Eastern

African American-targeted network TV One has
ordered its first scripted series, Love
That Girl
.

Bent Outta Shape Productions/Hazrah
Entertainment will reprise the show, which had a four-episode special run on TV
One in January. TV One has ordered a full season of 26 episodes (13 have
already been produced). The series, from Bentley Kyle Evans (Martin, The Jamie Foxx Show), is targeted for a first-quarter 2011
debut.

The series stars Tatyana Ali (Fresh Prince of Bel Air, TV
One Access
) as a divorcee who returns home to Southern California to make a
fresh start at life and a career, but one complicated by the arrival of her
stand-up comedian brother (Alphonso McAuley).

Martin Lawrence will serve as executive producer
as well as appear in the series.

TV One launched in 2004. Its investors include Comcast and DirecTV.
