The Game has just finished, but Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil have already inked their next deal. According to Variety, Salim and Mara Brock Akil have signed a multiyear overall deal with Warner Bros. TV through their Akil Productions banner. The new pact begins in May 2016. May 2016 is also when the Akil’s deal with BET ends.
As a result of the new deal, Mara Brock will step down from showrunner of BET’s number one program, “Being Mary Jane.” She will become an “executive consultant” on the series instead.
Is this why The Game came to an end this season? Anyways, congratulations to the couple on their new deal!
