BET Acquires ‘House Of Payne’

BET has secured rights to Debmar-Mercury’s comedy series Tyler Perry’s House Of Payne, the network said Wednesday.

The network has acquired all 254 episodes of the series, which follows the exploits of a multigenerational family living under one roof. BET will launch the series Nov. 1 with a 24-hour marathon, the network said.

House of Payne, which stars Allen Payne, LaVan Davis and Cassi Davis, debuted on TBS in 2007 and ran until 2012.

 “We identified House of Payne as a highly compatible series for our daytime sitcom staples,” says Maureen Guthman, Senior Vice President of Programming & Acquisitions for BET. “Not only is our audience a fan of this successful series but The Mann Family has been a talent on BET for years.”
