Bounce TV has started production in Los Angeles on the network's first original scripted sitcom, My Crazy Roommate. The series is created and produced by Bentley Kyle Evans of Bent Outta Shape Productions, previously responsible for Martin and the Jamie Foxx Show.
My Crazy Roommate, which will world premiere on Bounce TV on 15 October 15 is a comedy series about two young women, Brooke (Laila Odom) and Chole (Brittany Richards), from vastly different backgrounds who are forced to live together while on a crusade to find fame and fortune in Hollywood. The reluctant roommates find themselves in a series of dilemmas causing them to temporarily put their differences aside to resolve the many obstacles they face throughout their journey.
"Bounce TV has quickly become a major new force and outlet for high quality original programming for the vastly-underserved African American audience," said Evans. "I'm thrilled to be working with the network and to have it be the home of My Crazy Roommate. I'm looking forward to success of the series and a long and fruitful relationship with Bounce TV."
A broadcast television network for African-Americans, Bounce TV is rapidly expanding its originally-produced content. "We are aggressively moving forward with a robust slate of original programming and believe we are off to a terrific start working with Bentley and his team on My Crazy Roommate," said the network's executive vice president of programming and production at Bounce TV, Billy Hall.
