A heavy TV news day today...

I'm working on a longer post that takes a close look at all the new black TV networks, given that we've seen a few new ones launched (or soon to be launched); the one question I've long had is where all the content to fill up all those hours will come from. You'd think it would be a great time to be a content creator - especially one who creates content targetted at black American audiences... you'd think.

Here's a press release announcing the premiere date for Bounce TV's newest series, as it continues its push towards original programming - Rodney Perry hosts a variety show called Off The Chain, which will start airing on Monday October 22, at 9pm.

Also, the network will air its first CIAA football game this Saturday, October 6; the CIAA is the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association, the nation's largest African American athletic conference.

ATLANTA (Oct. 3, 2012) - Bounce TV (www.bouncetv.com), the fastest growing African American network in television, will kick-off its' 2012-13 college football coverage of the nation's largest African American athletic conference, the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA), on Sat. Oct. 6 as Elizabeth City State takes on Virginia State live from Rogers Stadium in Ettrick, VA at 1:00 p.m. (ET).

Bounce TV just announced a sports rights renewal agreement with Urban Sports Entertainment Group (USEG) to televise both CIAA football and basketball games. Bounce TV will air the CIAA Championship football game and select quarter- and semi- final CIAA tournament basketball games as part of the agreement.

Bounce TV will also premiere its newest original series, Off The Chain, on Monday, Oct. 22 at 9:00 p.m. (ET). Rodney Perry (Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family, Mo'Nique Show) hosts Off The Chain. Perry was the co-host of The Mo'Nique Show on BET as well as a host of TV One's Who's Got Jokes. He has been the opening act for such top comedians as George Lopez, Cedric the Entertainer, Steve Harvey and Mo'Nique. Perry also starred in Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family and is preparing his first comedy special for television entitled "Rodney Perry All The Way LIVE!" for the fall.
