According to our sources, there is a lot of talk over at BET for the Eddie Muphy film Boomerang to come to television as a new sitcom!
Our sources are telling us- even though its hard to confirm just yet-that BET is trying to convert Boomerang into a revamped sitcom, along the lines of the infamous film following Eddie Murphy’s playboy character Marcus, and Halle Berry’s character, Angela.
Boomerang, directed by Reggie Hudlin, is about a cocky ad executive, Marcus (Murphy) who has a reputation as a ladies’ man. However, Marcus gets a taste of his own medicine when a merger finds him working under the beautiful Jacqueline (Robin Givens), who has a similarly cavalier attitude about romance. Marcus and Jacqueline become involved, but he is put off by her noncommittal approach to their relationship. Meanwhile, Marcus also begins to develop feelings for the pretty Angela (Halle Berry), who is more thoughtful than Jacqueline.
