Boomerang Returns As A TV Show

We GooD!

Eddie Murphy’s classic romance will being coming to a living room near you with Halle Berry and Lena Waithe donning the exec producers’ cap. I for one, have been wondering for last twenty odd years what happened to that Eddie. He made a couple classics then fell off. I was just saying (to myself) last month that Robert Townsend’s The Five Heartbeats needs a series. The next best thing: Boomerang! In the spring of this year, BET ordered a 10-episode series. The premise initially seems a bit wonky, following the respective children of the original love triangle as they come-of-age, navigating love and career. It’ll be interesting to see what the writers whip up in era of similar successful fare such as Insecure, Being Mary Jane, Empire, Queen Sugar and at least a few more.
