Black Entertainment Television (BET) is eager to sign a deal with the ‘Loyal’ hitmaker, who was released from jail earlier this month, as they want to create a series based on his life after prison and his battle to stay out of trouble.
According to a source, “BET has made it clear to several production companies the network would absolutely air a Chris Brown reality series, chronicling his life after jail.”
The US network allegedly held a focus group on Tuesday in San Fernando Valley, California, to gauge the reaction of prospective viewers.
The group – comprised of female participants – were split, but the majority said they would tune in to the show, just to watch the 25-year-old singer struggle.
Chris was released from jail on June 2 after serving 108 days for violating his probation, which stemmed from his assault on his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
The Yeah 3x hitmaker – who was sent back to jail after being thrown out of court-ordered rehab in March – is determined to stay on the right track and only take the medication prescribed for his bipolar disorder.
An insider said previously: “He’s going to be taking his prescribed medication daily and do his best not to smoke or even drink.”
Chris was originally sentenced to 365 days in custody on May 9 after admitting he violated his probation by getting into a fight in Washington D.C. last year, but Judge James R. Brandlin gave him credit for the 234 days he had already spent in rehab and jail.
