It was just announced that Tyler Perry is looking for a deal that can put more eyes on his content. BET+ has more than 1.5 million subscribers as of last February but even with his 150 million dollar deal, he feel he can find better elsewhere!
Paramount Plus has more than 40 million subscribers. BET and Perry have enjoyed a fruitful relationship as Sistas and The Oval, both created by Perry were the two top cable series for Black audiences last year but he’s interested in Paramount as well.
Some fans think that Tyler Perry should just create his own network/streaming service.
We think this could be a good look for him and his series.
According to BET, Viewers have been locked in place as BET and Tyler Perry Studios continue to reign supreme across platforms. Tyler Perry’s Sistas and Tyler Perry’s The Oval claim the #1 and #2 series currently airing on cable with African Americans P2+ respectively.
Last year Tyler Perry’s The Oval, which stars Ed Quinn, Kron Moore, Javon Johnson, Ptosha Storey, Vaughn Hebron, Teesha Renee, Daniel Croix Henderson, Lodric Collins, Ciera Payton, and more, averaged 1.3 million total viewers per episode.
Tyler Perry’s Sistas. KJ Smith, Mignon (Andi ), Crystal Renee’ Hayslett (Fatima), Ebony Obsidian (Karen), Novi Brown (Sabrina), and Mignon Von’s (Danni ) performance in Sistas earned the show an average of 1.6 Million viewers on BET and BET Her weekly. The hit dramas have collectively generated over 315 million social views.
With these types of numbers, why fight to sign a deal when you can start your own network? Tyler already has his own studio!
