BET Is Celebrating "BLACK-TOBER FEST" with All Things Black Comedy (and Gary Owen)
This October, BET is taking black comedy to new heights with the return of "Real Husbands of Hollywood" with black movie star Kevin Hart (and "The Gary Owen Show" starring Gary Owen). This Black-tober Fest, we're celebrating all things black - black love, black family, black friendship - with black stars like Nick Cannon, Nelly, JB Smoove (plus Gary Owen).
REAL HUSBANDS OF HOLLYWOOD - Season 5 Premieres Tuesday, October 11 at 9 pm ET/PT
First up, Kevin Hart and the "Real Husbands of Hollywood" return for season 5 of the hit, reality-skewering mockumentary series that chronicles the comic escapades of the notorious pals as they navigate their way through stardom alongside - or in spite of - their famous wives and ex-wives. This season reunites Kevin with the original motley cast of "mitches" including Nick Cannon, Nelly, JB Smoove, Robin Thicke, Boris Kodjoe, Duane Martin, and Cynthia Kaye McWilliams as Trina Shaw. High wattage guest stars include Nia Long, Keke Palmer, Tyga, LeToya Luckett, and Faizon Love. Kevin Hart also makes his directorial debut this season!
THE GARY OWEN SHOW - Series Premieres Tuesday, October 11 at 9:30 PM ET/PT
The Gary Owen Show chronicles the life of America's favorite honorary Black comedian Gary Owen and his hilariously offbeat multiracial family. He broke through as the first Caucasian host of BET's Comic View, and also had star turns in the Think Like A Man films, Ride Along, and Meet the Blacks. Now he's bringing his own interracial and blended family to BET in a 30-minute unscripted series that is colorful, truthful and hysterical. Gary is constantly pushing the limits of what is politically correct when it comes to kids in small-town Ohio.
