BET seems to have a slew of new television series up its sleeves, including the highly-anticipated parody series "The Real House Husbands of Hollywood." The stars attached, which includes Kevin Hart, Nelly, and Nick Cannon, indicates that BET may very well have a hit on its hands. Most recently, Robin ThickeJ.B. Smoove, Boris Kodjoe, Duane Martin, and Faizon Love have all been added to the cast line-up. The series will parody the popular "Real Housewives" reality TV series and features both scripted and improvised dialogue.

Originally titled "House Husbands," the idea for the series grew out of a sketch starring Hart and other Black male comedians that aired during this year's BET Awards. Stan Lathan is slated to direct the series, which has reportedly received a 10 episode line up.
