BET will be soon bringing the early 90s classic film Boomerang to the small screen in the form of a TV series. Deadline reports the Boomerang series will be executive produced by The Chi creator Lena Waith and the original film’s star Halle Berry.
“I’m thrilled to team up with Lena on this project, as she is without a doubt a leading voice of her generation and a trail blazer in her own right,” Berry said in a statement. “I’m truly excited to be a part of bringing this iconic and beloved film to the small screen.”
Waithe provided more details on the forthcoming series revealing that it is not a reboot and instead is a continuation of the story and characters that we already love.
“There’s no point in trying to remake a classic, it can’t be done,” Waithe shared. “So we want to create something fresh that speaks to a new generation. We hope people will come to the show with an open mind and ready to embrace the new world we’ve created!”
