BET’s “Sistas” & “Zatima” Star Devale Ellis Shares Brotherly Bond On Set

Bet sistas Zatima

BET’s “Sistas” & “Zatima” universe has to be one of the biggest families in BET TV Show history and we’re talking cast, crew and fandom!!

One thing we love about the cast of both shows is how connected they are with the fans and the characters.

Devale Ellis who plays Zac on both shows recently shared a post showing love to his new “Zatima” brother Guyviaud and Cameron!

He took to Instagram to share:

“This is what it looks like when you’re tryna grow up, but your friends only see you how THEY know you. Can you really blame them? People can’t anticipate growth but they can learn to adapt IF you stay committed to the better you.

Side note: Once again working in this space with Nate @thereal_cameronfuller & Tony @guyviaud.joseph was so freeing because I asked them to trust me and they did. I threw shoes, they ducked, I snatched picture frames and screamed and they never broke character. The three of us worked for weeks, fully committing to showing the bond between 3 friends at different places in their lives. I hope you guys enjoy taking this journey with us. And real talk I almost broke when Nate got fully undressed. 😂😂😂 

Zac, Nate & Tone!


We love this friendship even though it comes with non stop drama for Zac. The first season of “Zatima” gave us so many old school sitcom vibes that it’s crazy.

BET shows are very good and successful but somehow always get left out of award season. We have a feeling that things will be different with “Zatima”!

Executive produced, directed, and written by Tyler Perry, “Zatima” airs exclusively on BET+. Devale Ellis and Crystal Renee Hayslett leads “Zatima” and the show marks the second spin-off from a Tyler Perry top-rated linear show to get greenlit by BET+. “Tyler Perry’s Zatima,” follows popular characters ‘Zac,’ played by Devale Ellis and ‘Fatima,’ played Crystal Renee Hayslett, as they navigate the ups and downs of their relationship.

Series regulars Cameron Fuller, Remington Hoffman, and Nzinga Imani, and recurring cast members Jasmin Brown, Guyviaud Joseph, and Danielle LaRoach are also apart of the cast.

Tyler Perry’s Sistas stars KJ Smith, Mignon, Ebony Obsidian, Novi Brown, Crystal Renee’ Hayslett, DeVale Ellis, Chido Nwokocha, Anthony Dalton II, Brian Jordan Jr., Kevin A. Walton, and Trinity Whiteside. The series follows a group of single black women bound together by their long-standing friendship. These five ladies — Andi (Smith), Danni (Mignon), Karen (Obsidian), Sabrina (Brown), and Fatima (Hayslett) — go after what they desire and handle the blows of life with resilience, determination, and the support of each other.
