Tia Mowry Talks About The Game's Possible Rescue

Tia Mowry credits The Game's vocal fan base for the BET Network's interest in resurrecting the canceled CW series for a fourth season.


"I never fully appreciated how impressive the fans can be and are, until there were rumors swirling that the CW was going to take us off the air," Mowry said not long after TVGuide.com reported that BET is trying to obtain rights to the half-hour comedy. "I put it on my Twitter almost every other day, saying how the Game fans rock and rule."

The Game cast first learned of BET's interest in developing new episodes back in January, when the cabler acquired syndication rights. Once the show got canceled by the CW, Mowry says, "that buzz increased."


But as badly as BET wants to send The Game into overtime, the network must hammer out a mutually acceptable licensing fee with CBS Television Studios, which produces the series. "[BET chairman and CEO] Debra Lee is trying everything and anything to make this happen," says Mowry.


Should a deal get done, it'd be a win for all sides. "The Game gets higher ratings than [BET's] original programming," says Mowry, "and we've heard there would be a huge marketing campaign. So I personally believe the show would be taken to another level."

i hope BET can make it happen. They need more new sitcoms not re-runs. THE GAME is a great show with suspense and some depth its really original and I love it.p.s. - i have always LIKED tia mowry and her sister tamera every since SISTER/SISTER. THE cute thing is that show was my favorite when i was younger and now even tho i am not that much older my oldest daughter gets to see the SISTER/SISTER show re-runs on Disney, it's great. I love that Tia is still doing her thing.HOPE THE SHOW KEEPS RUNNING.
