TYLER PERRY’S BRUH is a new half-hour original comedy series for BET+. Perry's second original series for the streaming service, the show examines the contemporary world of dating, career and friendship through the lens of four African American men with a brother-like bond. John, Tom, Mike and Bill are four college friends now in their thirties. As they navigate life, they are learning to stand on their own two feet, while relying on each other for support. Sometimes the love is tough, and the honesty brutal, but no matter the situation they see each other through with levity and laughter. In a society where companionship between men of color is often misjudged and misrepresented, the show depicts a healthy image of black brotherhood; embracing vulnerability without playing on stereotypical hypermasculinity. TYLER PERRY’S BRUH launches Thursday, May 7 exclusively on BET+.
The cast of TYLER PERRY’S BRUH stars Barry Brewer as Jonathan “John” Watts, Mahdi Cocci as Tom Brooks, Phillip Mullings Jr as Mike Alexander and Monti Washington as Bill Frazier. Additional cast includes Chandra Currelley as Alice Watts (John’s mother), Candice Renée as Regina (the ex-girlfriend that Bill wants back), and Alyssa Goss as Pamela (a casual girlfriend of Mike).
TYLER PERRY’S BRUH is executive produced, written, and directed by Tyler Perry. Michelle Sneed also serves as Executive Producer of the series for Tyler Perry Studios.
