Baldwin Hills: Excellent Black Entertainment Television

By Holly Wood

I just watched a post Thanksgiving Day marathon of the Black Entertainment Television (BET) show "Baldwin Hills" and it is a very good show. It looks like BET is really starting to upgrade its programming, but I bet some will still find something to complain about. “Baldwin Hills,” is a “Laguna Beach”-style documentary about rich teenagers in Los Angeles. There is an interesting chat forum about the show.

BET chairman and CEO Debra Lee took over the reigns after Robert Johnson sold the network to Viacom for $3 billion. BET is available in about 84 million homes. She has publicly stated that BET has plans for 16 new shows, which will include reality programming and talk shows. Ms. Lee has tapped Reginald Hudlin to develop BET’s new stable of shows. Hudlin is known for writing and directing such movies as “House Party,” “Boomerang” and “The Great White Hype.” He joined BET in 2006 to assist in improving the programming variety BET offers the public.
