its Web series 'BUPPIES' starring Tatyana Ali on Tues., Nov. 24th
22, 2009) BET.com will debut the much buzzed about web series BUPPIES on
Tuesday November 24th for a ten-week run. Set in the glitzy and
glamorous world of the Black Hollywood, BUPPIES chronicles the
relationship dramas of a group of slightly dysfunctional but inseparable
friends as they navigate the tricky terrain of L.A.'s young black power
elite. The groundbreaking web series is the first of its kind to feature
an African-American principal cast, and stars actress Tatyana Ali as
Quinci Allen ("The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," "Young and the Restless").
"We're very excited to have this dynamic web series shown on BET.com.
BUPPIES is a great extension of the existing content and overall digital
platform, satisfying users on a whole new level," commented Denmark
West, President of BET Digital Media Group. "Additionally, Tatyana Ali
is an amazing actress with undeniable talent. She brings a fresh,
relatable element to our site, and we're happy to work with her."
Episode one finds Quinci, the socialite daughter of a Hollywood
celebrity, trying to recover from the loss of her father and being
dumped by her basketball star fiance. In what ends up as a misguided
attempt to cheer her up, Quinci's friends throw her a big birthday
celebration that unfolds into a compelling series of personal dramas and
deep secrets that create the heart of this fascinating series.
BUPPIES was created and produced by critically acclaimed filmmakers.
Creator, writer and director Julian Breece's first film was an official
selection of this year's Sundance Film Festival. Just this year, he and
his producing partner, Aaliyah Williams, were highlighted as part of
IndieWire's "Top 10 New Voices in Black Cinema." Their production
company, Game Theory Films, produced the series along with Tatyana Ali
and her sister Anastasia's production company HazraH Entertainment.
Tatyana Ali serves as an Executive Producer of the series along with
producers Aaliyah Williams and Anastasia Ali.
