    The CW's/BET's The Game (From the Creator of Girlfriends)

    http://antisocialite3619.files.wordpress.com/2009/05/the-game.jpg

    It’s official: We just found out that BET is bringing back “The Game” for new episodes.

    While speaking with Drew Sidora earlier this week, the singer-actress dished some great news for fans of “The Game.”

    “The show is getting picked up, so for people that have been petitioning and wondering, it is coming back to BET. So, hopefully, you will see me back,” Drew told S2S exclusively. “It is official. The deal has been done.”

    Buzz of a partnership between BET and CBS TV that would reincarnate the once-cancelled sitcom began spreading in June. Last anyone heard, the network said it was close to a deal, but nothing was final.

    This news comes with the catch that production on another season of "The Game" hasn’t started just yet. And we heard that she show might actually be taping in Atlanta now.

    “Right now, they’re just trying to figure out when it’s going to actually come back, as far as when we start filming the new episodes and things like that,” said Drew. “But BET has picked it up.”

    “The Game” has always had a wonderfully loyal fan base, and those who tried to convince the CW to keep it had a big hand in its resurrection.

    “Everybody that petitioned—believe it or not—about the show getting cancelled, that is really what ultimately had BET even looking to pick it up,” she explained. “It was really dope. Everybody really loves the show and supports the show, so all I can say is keep watching.”

    But with the show headed to a new home field does that mean all of the original cast will be coming along with it?

    “I can’t say that for sure, but you will probably see a lot of the characters back,” Drew dished. She’s hoping to get a recurring spot on the show, reprising the self-named role of Drew Sidora. The big question there will be, if she does return, what does that mean for Derwin Davis and his new bride Melanie?

    “Just bring people up to date with that because it was never resolved. It was something we always wanted to bring back; it was all about the great timing of it,” Drew said. “I think now people are going to want to see what happens with Mel and I. You know, you might see us out somewhere. And the same with Derwin.”

    We can’t wait to find out what happens there next, but until production begins, click here to watch the season three finale.

    Okay, seryoso na talaga ito:

    BET nears deal to resurrect 'The Game'
    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/...5d6d0c60e30b80

    BET is inching closer to finalizing the deals for a new "Game."

    The cable network is expected to announce at its upfront presentation this month that it is resurrecting the CW sitcom with original episodes.

    The majority of the cast of "The Game," created by Mara Brock Akil, are expected to return.

    Because the options on the actors had expired following the show's cancellation in May, BET had to negotiate new deals with them.

    The network is expected to take lead in the production of the new episodes, with CBS Studios, which was behind "Game" when it was on CW, licensing the show to BET.

    Also, "Game" is expected to have a new showrunner, Salim Akil, who will take over for his wife, Brock Akil.

    Brock Akil will be an executive producer on the series. She serves as a consulting producer on ABC's freshman comedy "Cougar Town."

    Salim Akil, who also will be an executive producer on "Game," was the main director on the show while it was on CW, helming 45 episodes, and co-wrote an episode with his wife. He previously did a stint as exec producer showrunner on Showtime's "Soul Food."

    "Game," a spinoff from the long-running "Girlfriends," which the ICM-repped Brock Akil also created, was canceled in May after three seasons and after Brock Akil pitched the network an hourlong version of the show.

    Following the cancellation, BET began preliminary talks with CBS Studios about possibly taking in the series with new originals. The cable net already runs repeats of "Game" and "Girlfriends."

    BET's only previous stab at launching an original scripted series was the 2008 comedy "Somebodies," which ran for one season.
