What We’re Watching Tonight: Tyler Perry’s The Oval and Sistas.By Delaina Dixon | October 23, 2019 | Entertainment
Tyler Perry is at it again! This time the media mogul is at BET with two new series. TV DivaGal went to a VIP screening (BET blankets included!) and got to watch The Oval. The premise? The first interracial couple, President Hunter Franklin and First Lady Victoria, is in the White House. And while their lives look great from the outside, there’s a whole lotta ish happening at 1600 Pennslyvania Ave.
Along with the commander and chief and his family, The Oval introduces us to his White House staff, which includes head butler Richard and his son Barry, who has a kid with a woman who’s joined a cult, and while he doesn’t want his ex to see their offspring, his mama thinks she knows best to dastardly results… There’s also the chief of staff married to a fashion designer, but it’s not so clear how faithful she is to the marriage.
Yep, The Oval is a whole lot of outrageous plots and very over-the-top acting. But with what’s going on in the real White House, these twists and turns may seem perfectly tame. The Oval, premiering Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 9 p.m. on BET.
Tyler Perry’s other show Sistas will certainly ring true to any woman who’s been through heartbreak. Who can you turn to? Your best friends. That’s how Andrea, Karen, Daniella and Sabrina do it. No matter how tough life, love and work gets, they are there for one another. Sistas premieres Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 10 p.m. on BET.
