Boomerang is a half-hour subversive, smart, serialized comedy, fueled by romance, friendship, gender politics, love and of course, sex. The story picks up roughly twenty-five years after the original movie, and centers on the offspring of the iconic main characters. Imagine a world where Marcus Graham and Angela Lewis (Eddie Murphy and Halle Berry) walked off into the sunset – got married and had a daughter, Simone, and Jaqueline Broyer (Robin Givens) went on with her life and had a son, Bryson. The series follows these childhood friends as adults who are looking to make their own mark as marketing professionals, while navigating their feelings for each other.
The series is executive produced by Halle Berry and Lena Waithe in conjunction with Paramount Pictures. Boomerang had a successful screening at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival and will have it’s debut premiere on Tuesday February 12, 2019 at 10pm on BET. Matthew Head is called on to compose the original music for the program.
