Mara Brock Akil is developing a follow-up to her Girlfriends spinoff that helped launch The CW in 2006. The Game originally aired on The CW from 2006 until it was canceled in 2009. It was revived on BET in 2011, ending its nine-season run in 2015. Written by Akil and American Soul co-creator Devon Greggory, The Game reboot "will have a new East Coast setting. The Idea is for some of the original cast members to come back for what would be The Game‘s second revival," according to Deadline. Here's the official description: "The Game family was coasting to retirement but they heard the call of the fans to make a comeback… and like the record-breaking winners they are, they decided to pick up and move from a half-hour sitcom in San Diego to a one-hour dramedy in Baltimore. This time, our out-of-touch old-timers are determined to help a bunch of knuckle-head new-schoolers navigate the ruthless game of football on and off the field. They will clash through the pitfalls of fame, fortune and love. Some will win, others will lose, but that’s what happens when you play The Game."
