Halle Berry and Lena Waithe, two women with an Oscar and an Emmy respectively between them, have signed on as executive producers for a series based on the 1992 rom-com Boomerang, that starred Berry and Eddie Murphy. Murphy played Marcus Graham a self-centered executive working for a Black-owned cosmetics company while Berry, as Angela, was his love interest. Robin Givens played Jacqueline Boyer, Marcus boss and girlfriend, whose dating-like-a man tactics led to the relationship ‘boomerang’ of the movie’s title.
The movie also spawned the million-selling Boomerang soundtrack that introduced Toni Braxton to the public.
Produced by BET Networks and Paramount Television, the 10-episode half-hour series will premiere in 2019 on BET. This new series will follow the lives of Jacqueline Boyer’s son and Marcus and Angela Graham’s daughter as they try to step out of their parents’ shadows and make a legacy of their own.
