GMC Acquires Moesha; Fox Announces More Stars, Reunions for Fox 25th Anniversary Special


Moesha

GMC (aka Gospel Music Channel) has acquired the cable rights to the popular '90s sitcom Moesha starring Brandy. The former UPN comedy will air on GMC starting Saturday, April 14 where it will get a launch marathon. The marathon will start at 8am and will last through 7pm. As of now, GMC is being tight-lipped on the regular schedule, so we can't share when it will air regularly just yet. The six-season sitcom has 127 episodes. The sitcom has not been on cable since WGN America and TeenNick (then known as The N) stopped airing the sitcom in 2009. Moesha will fit right in with GMC's other sitcoms Sister Sister, 227, Amen, and Cosby. GMC also airs dramas The Waltons, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, and Judging Amy and game show Don't Forget the Lyrics.
Stay with us in the coming days for the new GMC schedule with Moesha!
