Tyler Perry’s Bruh Trailer & Premiere Date Released for BET+ Series
Tyler Perry’s new series Bruh is set to premiere on May 7 on BET+, according to Deadline, with the first three episodes of the 24-episode season launching together with new episodes dropping weekly thereafter. You can check out the trailer for Bruh below!
“Bruh,” a slang term made popular by Black-Greek culture, refers to a friend so close they are more like a brother. The dramedy follows four longtime friends, now in their 30s, as they navigate life and relationships through the strength of their brother-like bond. The series depicts a healthy image of black brotherhood while tackling some stereotypes faced by men of color.
The official synopsis for the new series reads: “For John, Tom, Mike, and Bill, no expression could characterize their camaraderie more accurately. Whether fulfilling career dreams or finding love, these four college buddies now in their thirties find themselves learning to stand on their own two feet, while leaning on each other for support and guidance. Sometimes their love is tough and their honesty brutal, but they manage to see each other through every scenario with levity and laughter.”
Barry Brewer stars as Jonathan “John” Watts, Mahdi Cocci as Tom Brooks, Phillip Mullings Jr as Mike Alexander and Monti Washington as Bill Frazier. Additional cast includes Chandra Currelley as Alice Watts (John’s mother), Candice Renée as Regina (the ex-girlfriend that Bill wants back), and Alyssa Goss as Pamela (a casual girlfriend of Mike).
Bruh is executive produced, written, and directed by Perry. Michelle Sneed serves as executive producer for Tyler Perry Studios.
