Well my dear Friends. TV One has decided Not 2 pick up Belles the best show & cast they ever had. I am in shock. But it will be back.
The above is a tweet from co-star of the series, Miguel Núñez.
So I suppose that's it then for TV One's latest original scripted series, Belle’s - a comedy centered around a widower who owns and operates his family's upscale soul food restaurant.
The half-hour series was co-created by Emmy Award-winning producer Ed Weinberger (Taxi, The Cosby Show).
Keith David, Elise Neal, Tami Roman, Ella Joyce and Nadja Alaya, made up the series' starring cast.
The family-friendly series premiered on February 1 for a modest 6-episode run on TV One, to less than enthusiastic overall reviews.
It looks like those 6 episodes are it!
I watched a couple of them, and, in short, it was not for me, and I never returned; so this non-pick up isn't a surprise to me. Although I'm glad TV One is making the effort to produce original scripted shows. They've certainly done well with the non-scripted series like Unsung, Find Our Missing, and others.
Were you a Belle's fan? Will you miss it?
