Hazrah Entertainment presents BUPPIES on BET.com
Over five million people tuned in to see BUPPIES, a groundbreaking online series, financed and produced Tatyana and Anastasia Ali of HazraH Entertainment. BET began airing BUPPIES, the first original web series to present an all African-American cast and BET's first original web series in November 2009. The exclusive licensing deal with BET and the show's lead sponsor, Cover Girl, marked an unprecedented effort to promote the series over a multiplatform network--via television promos and social networking sites--to drive viewers to the series's online home. With BUPPIES, Tatyana and Anastasia's first joint endeavor, the sisters hope to usher in a new era of African-American storytelling by targeting the urban digital space.
A total of 10 episodes aired on BET.com between November 2009 and August 2010, each averaging five minutes in length.
Logline: After losing her father and being dumped by her fiance, Quinci (Tatyana Ali), the socialite daughter of a Hollywood celebrity, realizes that her friends are her only real family left. This provocative and ironic series chronicles the relationship dramas of Quinci's dysfunctional but virtually inseparable friends as they navigate the perks and pitfalls faced by LA's young black power elite.
