BET is bringing the black college experience to television with the January 2017 launch of scripted dramatic series The Quad.

Also featuring Jasmine Guy (A Different World, also about an HBCU) and Sean Blakemore (General Hospital), The Quad was created by Felicia D. Henderson (Gossip Girl, Soul Food) and Charles Holland (CSI: Miami, NY Undercover), based on a concept created by Rob Hardy (How To Get Away With Murder,Power).
