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.
