We discovered from our sources today that Byron Allen’s company, Entertainment Studios is in talks with comedian and actor Bill Bellamy for him to star in a new television show along with comedian Jon Lovitz. No word on what the name of the show will be. We first heard that the show will be on BET and then maybe syndicated, but no word yet definitively about either one.
The premise of the show is Bellamy’s character is supposed to be a Hollywood star who ends up in trouble with the law, and is court ordered to do some community service which lands him in South Central Los Angeles. What his character didn’t expect was that he would end up loving the kids that he is supposed to mentor, and then he finds himself not wanting to go back to Hollywood. Lovitz plays his agent who is constantly trying to lure him back to Hollywood.
We do know that Bellamy is in serious negotiations with CBS for another new show titled The Bill Bellamy Show supposedly scheduled for 2013, so we are not sure if he can even do both. He is also preparing to drop Crazy, Sexy, Dirty, (the name of his latest one hour comedy special), the Ladies Night Out Comedy Show, and a new film titled Execution Style.
Only time will tell what is going to happen.
Check out the interview we did with Bellamy a couple of weeks back at the Shaq Comedy All Star Jam in Orlando during NBA All Star Weekend;
