Barney Miller Summer Fridays on Antenna TV; Tyler Perry Studios Takes Over BET with New Series

Barney Miller

Antenna TV is doing a summer stunt on Friday nights! Starting Friday, July 5, Antenna TV will air Barney Miller every Friday evening from 7-10pm. Barney Miller airs weeknights from 9-10pm ET and Saturdays from 8-9pm ET on Antenna TV, so it is being expanded on Friday nights. The '70s sitcom was set in a New York City Police Department police station on East 6th St in Greenwich Village. The sitcom starred Hal Linden, Abe Vigoda, Max Gail, Ron Glass, Jack Soo, James Gregory, Steve Landesberg and Ron Carey. This change is in addition to the schedule change we mentioned last week that brought changes to Saturday afternoons and a minor weekday change.


The Oval

BET Networks and Tyler Perry Studios announced that a new original drama, The Oval, the first series under Perry's exclusive, multi-year content partnership deal with Viacom will begin principal photography this summer at Tyler Perry Studios. Starring Ed Quinn, Kron Moore, Paige Hurd and Daniel Croix Henderson, The Oval, will introduce viewers to the new first family moving into the White House. This picture-perfect couple has it all! Money, status, and pure bliss flank the Mr. & Mrs. However, behind closed doors, they are anything but flawless. With lies, cheating and messy mayhem running amuck, in the new scripted series, we see next level corruption up close and way too personal, directly from the White House. Please believe, you could not write this... but Tyler did!

With over 75 hours of new original content slated to premiere on BET over the next year, Perry's future line-up will also include another drama series, two comedy series, and a live holiday-themed production.
