Bounce TV announced via press release this morning that the fledgling black TV network has started production in Los Angeles on the network's first original scripted sitcom, My Crazy Roommate.  

The series, created and produced by Bentley Kyle Evans (Martin, The Jamie Foxx Show) of Bent Outta Shape Productionsis a comedy series about two young women, Brooke (Laila Odom) and Chole (Brittany Richards), from vastly different backgrounds who are forced to live together while on a crusade to find fame and fortune in Hollywood. The reluctant roommates find themselves in a series of dilemmas causing them to temporarily put their differences aside to resolve the many obstacles they face throughout their journey.

My Crazy Roommate will world premiere on Bounce TV, Tuesday, October 15 at 10p.m. ET.

"Bounce TV has quickly become a major new force and outlet for high-quality original programming for the vastly-underserved African American audience," says Evans.  "I'm thrilled to be working with the network and to have it be the home of My Crazy Roommate. I'm looking forward to success of the series and a long and fruitful relationship with Bounce TV."

EVP Programming and Production, Bounce TV, Billy Hall commented, "We are aggressively moving forward with a robust slate of original programming and believe we are off to a terrific start working with Bentley and his team on My Crazy Roommate."

Competitive black TV network space, which can only be a good thing for the consumer.

    Is it just me or has no one else EVER seen this channel? What cable companies does this run on? Who is watching and is Bounce actually making any revenue?
