Viacom Continues Network Shakeup, Moves ‘The Breaks’ & ‘Hit The Floor’ From VH1 To BET For New Seasons

Posted April 28, 2017


BET has a lot of surprises in store for their network for 2017 and the news is coming out left and right.

Following the news that longtime creative force Stephen Hill was given the boot after almost 20 years, and word that the network was set to air a new Bobby Brown biopic, now they have picked up two shows from the VH1 network.

BET Chairman and CEO, Debra Lee revealed this week that the network has picked up ‘Hit The Floor’ and ‘The Breaks’ for their fourth and second seasons respectively. Both shows premiered on VH1 but now will move over to the soon to be revamped BET.

The decision to move scripted dramas “The Breaks” and “Hit the Floor” from VH1 to BET leaves the former with only one scripted series (the forthcoming “Daytime Divas”) as Viacom continues to shuffle the decks. VH1 kicked the shuffling off when “RuPaul’s Drag Race” moved from Logo to VH1; “Heathers” and “American Woman” — both developed at TV Land — moved to Paramount Network when the former Spike TV is rebranded in January.

“‘The Breaks’ and ‘Hit the Floor’ are great shows with incredible teams behind them, and we’re happy their passionate fans will get more of them through their new home at BET. At VH1, we have no plans of slowing down as we launch our newest scripted series starring Vanessa Williams on June 5,” a VH1 spokesperson said in a statement about the future of scripted at the network.
