They say Millennials think and act differently today than their counterparts from Generations X and Y at the same point in their lives.
BET is going to show us just how differently and is betting that the personality unveilings will be engrossing, entertaining and enlightening all at the same time. Black Millennials will showcase their professional and personal lives in the new docu/reality show called “Hustle in Brooklyn.”
BET Networks announced they will be following the “young and sexy millennials” as they “balance in their professional hustle and personal lives,” according to bet.com. Viewers are going to take a foray into the lives of up-and-coming entrepreneurs, hip hop artists, DJs and shot-callers of renowned record labels.
“Hustle In Brooklyn” is set to premiere on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 10 p.m. ET on BET.
