BET Reviving Their "College Hill" Series with a Celebrity Twist! Celebrity Roommates Announced!
BET has been on a roll lately and there's no stopping this machine! If you've been a follower of the original "reality television" genre for a while then you're already familiar with the BET series "College Hill". If you're not familiar, let me give you the gist of it. Imagine a group of college students, who are strangers, are put into a house, with all the amenities and all of the attitude that comes from different walks of life. Sometimes life long friendships are made and others. . . life long enemies.
In a statement released today the media conglomerate said:
"BET goes back to school to revive the nostalgic reality series “COLLEGE HILL: CELEBRITY EDITION.” In the reimagined new season, celebrities will live together and join the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Texas Southern University as students. Nene Leakes, Ray J, Lamar Odom, Big Freedia, Stacey Dash, DreamDoll, India Love, and Slim Thug will head back to class to expand their educational horizons. Premiering Summer 2022, the 8-episode series will explore college life through a celebrity lens while showcasing the unique cultural and academic experience of HBCUs. Despite their respective fame and notoriety, each cast member is committed to focusing on their higher education as a personal challenge to prove it’s never too late. Enrolled alongside current Texas Southern University students, the cast will work towards completing a specialty certificate program to cross the graduation stage. Though to triumph, like any ordinary college student, they must complete their course work along with required internships, extra credit opportunities, group projects, and more. Who will take the lead on group projects? Who will pull an all-nighter?
“As the original creator and Executive Producer of ‘COLLEGE HILL,’” said Tracey Edmonds, CEO, and President of Edmonds Entertainment. “I am so elated to partner with Texas Southern University and be able to bring back this cherished franchise with an exciting new twist that I am sure will entertain and inspire new and old fans across the board. We intend to provide a fun but sometimes challenging journey that will show viewers it’s never too late to go back to school.”
I don't know about you but, I know this show is going to be something to see! I'm not saying Nene and Stacey are going to clash but I am saying I have my eye on these two!
