Bounce Announces New Comedy Series Grown Folks, Renews Saints & Sinners, Family Time, In The Cut

2017-18 Programming Slate Includes Exclusive Telecast of The Trumpet Awards 2018, Quarterly Ed Gordon Newsmagazine Specials, New Season of Premiere Boxing Champions on Bounce

ATLANTA, Aug. 3, 2017 -- Bounce -- the nation's fastest-growing television network designed for African-American audiences -- today announced an expansion of original programming heading into the 2017-18 television season, including the launch of an all-new comedy series, the renewals of three popular shows and more special event programming and live sports.

New Series

From the creator of In The Cut and Family Time, Bentley Kyle Evans, comes Grown Folks, a half-hour situation comedy about two blue-collar couples who share a duplex while navigating life, marriage and friendship. Grown Folks stars Gary "G-Thang" Johnson (Disaster Movie, Moneyball), Tracey Cherelle Jones (Don't Be a Menace to South Central, The Players Club, Baby Boy), Jay Phillips (Semi-Pro, Baby Mama, Prom Night) and Caryn Ward Ross (The Game, You Take the Kids). World premieres Tues. Oct. 3 at 9:30 p.m. (ET).

Renewed

Saints & Sinners, the mega-hit original drama series and #1 most-watched program in Bounce history, has been renewed for a third season. Cliffhangers will be resolved and new twists and turns will develop as viewers are brought back to Cypress, Georgia, the sleepy southern town outside Atlanta which is flooded with greed, deception, corruption, compromising sexual affairs and murder. The eight-episode season will be shot in the fall and will premiere in the spring of 2018. Vanessa Bell Calloway, Christian Keyes, Keith Robinson, Clifton Powell, J.D. Williams, Jasmine Burke, Demetria McKinney and Tray Chaney return. Saints & Sinners is produced in partnership with Swirl Film's Eric Tomosunas (Love Under New Management: The Miki Howard Story, 35 and Ticking, The Undershepard.)

Family Time, which returns for season five on Tues. Oct. 3 at 9:00 p.m., has been renewed for a sixth season. The hit sitcom comedically chronicles the lives of the Stallworth family, headed by the dad, a struggling general contractor played by Omar Gooding, and his wife, an unfulfilled stay-at-home mom portrayed by Angell Conwell. Tanjareen Thomas, Paula Jai Parker, Clayton Thomas, Bentley Kyle Evans, Jr. and Jayla Calhoun co-star.

In The Cut, whose new third season episodes are currently premiering Tuesday nights at 9:00 p.m. ET through the summer, has been renewed for a fourth season. Dorien Wilson stars as an accomplished entrepreneur and barbershop owner who is kept on his toes by Kellita Smith, the co-owner of the beauty salon next door and his love interest, with his son Ken Lawson and best friend John Marshall Jones involved in the hijinks. Season four will air in the summer of 2018.

2016-17 saw Bounce premiere new originals every week of the year. This season, Bounce will present a full-hour of two shows back-to-back with premiere episodes of Family Time and Grown Folks airing Tuesday nights 9:00 - 10:00 p.m. (ET) beginning Oct. 3.

Special Event Programming

The Trumpet Awards, the prestigious annual event celebrating African-American achievements and contributions, will world premiere January 2018. Bounce acquired all assets of The Trumpet Awards and now owns, produces and exclusively televises the star-studded gala.

The network's news magazine show, Ed Gordon, returns with new installments executive-produced and hosted by the Award-winning journalist Gordon.

Exciting live boxing with Premier Boxing Champions on Bounce returns this fall.

Bounce has grown to be available in more than 95 million homes across the United States and 93% of all African-American (AA) television homes, including all the top AA television markets. Bounce features a programming mix of original and off-network series, theatrical motion pictures, specials, live sports and more.
