In Carl Weber’s The Black Hamptons , we follow a bubbling feud between two affluent Black families, the Brittons and the Johnsons, where the difference of old money v. new money is only the tip of the iceberg. From the “glitz and gloss” of the Black elite to the “underbelly of wealth and prestige,” the new series shows the many layers of this 1%. “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Tri Destined Studios and Urban Books Media on a new addictive limited series,” said Maureen Guthman , SVP, Programming Content Strategy, BET. “BET’s ongoing commitment to telling compelling dramatic, character-driven original stories, anchored in the Black experience continues to propel our diverse storytelling to new heights.” Carl Weber’s The Black Hamptons is executive produced by Nikaya D. Brown Jones for Tri Destined Studios and Carl Weber for Urban Books Media. Trey Haley (The Family Business , Always A Bridesmaid , The Man in 3B ), will sit as director and co-executive producer for Tri Destined Studios. Grammy award-winning producer Rico Love serves as music supervisor.
