The First Two Episodes Now Available For Review

BET.com will launch its first and much anticipated web series, BUPPIES, on Tuesday November 24th. Against the glitzy backdrop of Black Hollywood, this dynamic 10-episode series follows the ups and downs of a closely knit group, and stars actress Tatyana Ali.

Episode one finds Quinci, the socialite daughter of a Hollywood celebrity, trying to recover from the loss of her father and being dumped by her basketball star fiance. In what ends up as a misguided attempt to cheer her up, Quinci's friends throw her a big birthday celebration that unfolds into a compelling series of personal dramas and deep secrets that create the heart of this fascinating series.
