BET has ordered a 12-episode second season of semi-scripted comedy Real Husbands Of Hollywood. The series, created by Kevin Hart and Chris Spencer, debuted to more than 4 million viewers in January. Labeled the “fakest reality show ever,” Real Husbands Of Hollywood features actor/comedian Kevin Hart and his Hollywood pals as they navigate their way through stardom alongside – or in spite of – their famous wives. The cast includes Nick Cannon, husband of Mariah Carey, Boris Kodjoe, husband of actress Nicole Ari Parker, Duane Martin, husband of actress Tisha Campbell-Martin, J. B. Smoove, husband of the songstress Shahidah Omar and Robin Thicke, husband of actress Paula Patton. Also expected to return for Season 2 is Nelly. “When we launched this series in January, we knew our audience would have as much fun watching it as we had making it, and since it has been on the air, fans have voiced on social media that they want more. So this was a pretty simple decision: ‘Hey! Let’s make more!’ ” says Stephen Hill, BET’s President of Music Programming and Specials. Real Husbands Of Hollywood is executive produced by Kevin Hart, Stan Lathan, Ralph Farquhar, Jesse Collins, Tim Gibbons, Chris Spencer and Dave Becky.
