Among the new shows in the works for the streaming platform is another reboot of The Game, the Mara Brock Akil comedy spinoff of Girlfriends that last aired on BET from 2011 to 2015. Lioness, a CIA drama series by Taylor Sheridan, and The Offer, a scripted 10-episode limited series based off of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather.
