Without a doubt, most films and TV shows from previous eras are untouchable and don’t deserve a remake. Lena Waithe and Halle Berry aim to change this perspective with a spin on a classic ’90s romantic comedy.

Both women serve as executive producers to the sequel of  Boomerang. The original film follows womanizer Marcus (Eddie Murphy) meeting his match in the form of Jacqueline Boyer (Robin Givens) before falling in love with the under-looked love interest Angela Graham (Berry’s breakout role in the movie). Instead of going the movie route, Waithe and Berry steered themselves into cable TV territory. Berry tells Variety, the update is “less of a reboot and more of a continuation of the original story.”

Most people recognize Waithe behind her writing role in the “Thanksgiving” episode for Netflix’s “Master of None.” Consequently, Lena continued creative efforts for Showtime’s “The Chi” while landing onscreen roles in “This Is Us”, “Ready Player One”, and more.

The new series follows the lives of Jacqueline’s son and Marcus and Angela’s daughter as they step out of their parents’ shadows to create a lasting legacy of their own.

BET  has picked up Boomerang as a 10-episode series. With no date in sight, the network continues to helm new projects that expand on original programming content.

Will you be tuning in when it airs?
