According to THR, BET has decided to expand its list of programming by adding three new original unscripted shows. The Viacom-owned cable network has handed out series orders to docuseries starring rapper Nelly, R&B singer Keyshia Cole and one featuring Tyler Perry collaborators David and Tamela Mann.

Though it’s currently untitled, the Keyshia Cole show will have a total of 6 episodes and will chronicle her ongoing emotional journey as she confronts real-life issues, including her unstable marriage to NBA player Daniel Gibson, her evolving career, motherhood and family struggles.

Nelly’s currently untitled project will feature 8 episodes and focus on the rapper navigating his hip-hop career, fashion businessman/co-owner of the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats and father to his biological children and his late sister’s children, all while balancing a relationship with Miss Jackson, and the untitled David and Tamela Mann show will follow the couple, who have been married for 26 years, at home with their four adult children, at exclusive events and with their famous friends and family. BET has picked up 8┬áhour long episodes of the show from Entertainment One.

They will join current shows The Game, Being Mary Jane, Let’s Stay Together and Real Husbands of Hollywood. Thoughts?
