The Real Husbands of Hollywood first premiered as a comedic sketch during the 2011 BET Awards. It starred Kevin Hart, Nelly, Anthony Anderson, and Nick Cannon as they played the role of Hollywood “kept” husbands. The sketch successfully poked fun of the popular Real Housewives series and quickly became a phenomenon. BET took notice and decided to make the sketch into a prime time series that will air in Spring 2013.
Described as a semi-scripted (un)reality TV spoof The Real Husbands of Hollywood series will star Kevin Hart, Robin Thicke, J.B. Smoove, Boris Kodjoe, and Duane Martin as they grapple with the pressures of spousal stardom. Actress Sanaa Lathan will direct the 10 episode series while her father Stan Lathan will serve a executive producer.
It’s nice to see BET bringing back the funny to it’s television line up. I was getting tired of watching reruns of “The Parkers” for my comedy fix. After watching the sneak peek episode below, will you tune into The Real Husbands of Hollywood when it premieres on BET?
