“Single Ladies” fans you may be in luck! Word on the street is producers are shopping the canceled VH1 series at different networks.
According to Jawn Murray’s Always A List blog, BET is in talks to pick up the one-hour drama, which starred LisaRaye McCoy, Charity Shea and Denise Vasi. A publicist at the network is refusing to confirmed or deny the reports, simply stating “We can not comment at this time.”
As we reported earlier, VH1 canceled the original series in the midst of its third season back in February. “We’ve been proud to deliver three seasons of the drama, romance and style that engaged viewers in each episode of Single Ladies,” the cable network said in a statement. “Although we’ve decided not to move forward with another season, we hope to work again with the talented cast, creatives and producers as well as our partners at Flavor Unit Entertainment in the near future. We also thank the show’s fans for their support since the premiere in 2011.”
The Queen Latifah production was highly successful, drawing in 2.6 million viewers for its third season premiere.
