BET Networks announces the return of hit original dramedy “THE GAME” and the premiere of the brand new docu-series “IT’S A MANN’S WORLD” starring David and Tamela Mann. Both series premiere on a new night, Wednesday, January 14 beginning at 9 P.M. ET/PT.

Season 8 of “THE GAME” continues to explore the world of The San Diego Sabers through the eyes of its beloved characters, while bringing back some fan favorites to stir up the drama. After the Season 7 cliffhanger, the new season kicks off with Jason (Coby Bell) apologizing for refusing Chardonnay (Brandy Norwood) at the altar, as he tries to reconcile with his ex-wife Kelly (Brittany Daniel). Jason also faces new pressures, as he assumes the role of interim coach of the Sabers. Meanwhile, Tasha Mack (Wendy Raquel Robinson) re-enters life as a single mother, while Malik (Hosea Chanchez) struggles for visibility from the bottom tier of the team. The newbies, Keira (Lauren London) and Blue (Jay Ellis), continue to make rookie mistakes on and off the field.

“THE GAME” is a half hour dramedy that takes a behind-the-scenes look at the “dysfunctional” football family of the San Diego Sabers, as they navigate fame, relationships and the pressures of professional football. “THE GAME” is executive produced by Mara Brock Akil, Salim Akil, Kenny Smith, Hale Rothstein, Jenifer Rice-Genzuk and Kelsey Grammer. “The Game” season 8 will consist of eight episodes airing consecutively each Wednesday.

Known for their starring roles on stage and screen, Tamela and David Mann have become household names for their #1 comedy, “Meet the Browns.” Their new show, “IT’S A MANN’S WORLD” will take a peek behind their celebrity on-screen personas, exclusive events, famous friends and the at-home lives of David and Tamela Mann. Over the course of eight one-hour episodes, viewers will get a taste of how David and Tamela balance being celebrities, entrepreneurs, and parents to four adult children – all while maintaining their 26-year old marriage. Viewers may have met the Browns, but this show introduces them to the Mann’s world like you’ve never seen them before.

The series is executive produced by David and Tamela Mann in partnership with eOne along with Tara Long, Howie Miller, Kim McKoy, Roger Bobb, Eric Hoberman and John Morayniss.
