BET Networks has announced an unprecedented multi-year agreement with Salim and Mara Brock Akil’s Akil Productions. Through the deal, the YBF husband and wife duo, who currently serve as executive producers for “The Game” will develop new shows for BET Networks.

“We’re thrilled to build on the very important relationship between our network and the Hollywood creative community, especially with two proven powerhouses in entertainment – Salim and Mara Brock Akil,” said Loretha Jones, President of Original Programming at BET Networks.“Through this partnership we hope to continue to bring our audience high quality content that reflects their lives and our communities.”

When asked about the partnership, Mara said,

“Our goal is to expand on our existing brand, by way of Akil Productions, to create new opportunities for ourselves and others,” said the Akils. “BET has provided us with a tremendous platform to create smart, funny and dramatic, quality programming with multi-layered and multi-dimensional characters appealing to millions of viewers.”

The new deal is only the cherry on the Akil’s sundae of success. Salim, who also directs “The Game,” made his feature film directorial debut with Jumping The Broom which opened as the country’s #1 comedy last weekend.

Congrats to the Black Star Power couple, Hollywood needs more like them in the business and every little bit counts
