Centric Sets Pact with Queen Latifah,

The Queen Latifah-produced scripted series “Single Ladies” has found new life on Centric, the BET sibling cabler.

Centric has ordered a fourth season of the romantic comedy series, which previously aired on VH1, as part of a larger content development pact with Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment. Centric will also carry repeats of Latifah’s daytime syndie talker.

“We are thrilled to be working once again with Flavor Unit Entertainment and Queen Latifah. She does it all and we are happy to have her join us as a creative force as we continue to grow Centric into a premiere destination for African American women,” said BET Networks chairman-CEO Debra Lee.

The “Single Ladies” pickup was the centerpiece of Centric’s portion of BET Networks’ upfront presentation announcement in Los Angeles Tuesday.

Flavor Unit, run by Latifah and partner Shakim Compere, is already in business with BET as the producer of the scripted comedy “Let’s Stay Together.”

“Single Ladies,” created and exec produced by Stacy Littlejohn, revolves around three female friends in Atlanta.
