It's a comeback story like no other. Primetime's new dynamic-duo, Malcolm-Jamal Warner of Cosby Show fame and Tracee Ellis Ross, formerly of Girlfriends, will be starring in BET's highly anticipated new series Reed Between the Lines. The sitcom is being called a modern-day Cosby Show, since both of the lead characters are successful professionals who are struggling to build careers while keeping their kids on track.
Alex, played by Warner, is an English professor, while Ross' character, Carla, is a psychologist. Carla has twins from a previous marriage, Keenan and Kaci. Together, Alex and Carla Reed have a cute little daughter named Alexis. This contemporary blended family faces all of the ups and downs other families confront on a daily basis, and the show is expected to bring back the family values-style of programming cherished by fans of The Cosby Show and other shows from yesteryear — values that producers of the show believe will resonate with BET's audience.
Reed Between the Lines premieres October 11 10P/9C, only on BET.
