Fans can now expect to see Marcus Graham back on their screens as a reboot of ‘Boomerang’ has been ordered at BET. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series currently doesn’t have a producing team attached but is set for 10 episodes. The announcement comes as BET looks to build a stronger catalog of scripted-series.

In terms of Tuesday’s orders, a writer and producing team on Boomerang have not yet been determined. The 10-episode, half-hour comedy hails from corporate sibling Paramount Television. Like the original, it revolves around a successful executive who finds that his lifestyle choices have turned back on him when his new boss turns out to be a bigger deviant that he is. It’s described as an updated version that explores contemporary workplace dynamics, including the changing role of gender, office politics, relationships and the conflicts between Generation X and millennials.
