Bounce TV Begins Production on Its First Original Scripted Sitcom: "My Crazy Roommate" Created and Executive Produced by Bentley Kyle Evans

Series Premieres Tuesday, October 15th at 10:00 P.M. (ET)

ATLANTA, Aug. 13, 2013 -- Bounce TV (www.BounceTV.com) has started production in Los Angeles on the network's first original scripted sitcom, My Crazy Roommate. The series is created and produced by Bentley Kyle Evans ("Martin", "The Jamie Foxx Show") of Bent Outta Shape Productions. My Crazy Roommate will world premiere on Bounce TV, Tuesday, October 15 at 10:00 p.m. ET.

My Crazy Roommate is 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.

The series was created and produced by veteran producer Evans through Bent Outta Shape Productions. "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."

The nation's first-ever broadcast television network for African-Americans, Bounce TV is rapidly expanding its originally-produced content. 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."

ABOUT BENT OUTTA SHAPE PRODUCTIONS

Bent Outta Shape is home to Bentley Kyle Evans, Co-Producer of and Executive Producer to the hugely successful sitcoms "Martin" and "The Jamie Foxx Show".

Best known for sitcoms, Evans also co-wrote "A Thin Line Between Love And Hate" and created "Love That Girl". With a career spanning two decades, Evans continues to produce content to entertain the African-American audience.
