Tyler Perry is obviously not relenting in his efforts dropping original content exclusively for BET, and this latest series of his is celebrating black male brotherhood. After the successful conclusion of Tyler Perry’s first original BET+ series “Ruthless”, another black folks initiative series “BRUH” will be launched on Thursday, May 7 exclusively across all platforms.

The acts on the show are very intimate to be called brothers, or “bruhs.” The four ‘like forever’ friends are pacing life and relationships through the compactness of their brotherhood.

The bruhs first bonded in college are now in their thirties and learning to be independent of themselves. The first three episodes of the 24-episode season will be available to stream at launch, with a new episode dropping each in subsequent weeks.

An official synopsis reads:

“For John, Tom, Mike, and Bill, no expression could characterize their camaraderie more accurately. Whether fulfilling career dreams or finding love, these four college buddies now in their thirties find themselves learning to stand on their own two feet, while leaning on each other for support and guidance. Sometimes their love is tough and their honesty brutal, but they manage to see each other through every scenario with levity and laughter.”

“In a society where companionship between men of color is often misjudged and misrepresented, TYLER PERRY’S BRUH depicts a healthy image of black brotherhood; embracing vulnerability without playing on stereotypical hypermasculinity.”

BRUH stars Barry Brewer as Jonathan “John” Watts, the sweet but old fashioned working-class cutie, Mahdi Cocci as Tom Brooks, the doctor with lady problems, Phillip Mullings Jr. as Mike Alexander, the lawyer who’s apparently up to no good, and Monti Washington as Bill Frazier, the architect who’s pining away for an ex.

Additional cast includes Chandra Currelley as Alice Watts, John’s violently hilarious mother, Candice Renée as Regina, the ex-girlfriend that Bill can’t keep off from, and Alyssa Goss as Pamela, a casual girlfriend of Mike’s, apparently one of several.

Tyler Perry’s BRUH is executive produced, written, and directed by Tyler Perry. Michelle Sneed also serves as an Executive Producer of the series for Tyler Perry Studios.
