BET has announced College Hill Interns, a spin-off of its successful College Hill docu-reality series, is scheduled to premiere in October.
College Hill Interns will follow eight college students as they move to Chicago, IL to work at summer internships. If honing their skills at different professions while away from home wasn't hard enough, the students will also have to balance their new responsibilities with the sometimes overwhelming temptation to party.
College Hill first premiered in 2004 and was billed as the "television's first ever dramatic black reality show" by BET. It has since aired three more season, with College Hill 4 premiering last March and following four native Virgin Islanders living with a group of California transfer students while attending the University of the Virgin Islands in sunny St. Thomas.
In addition to College Hill Interns, BET announced the second season of Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is -- a docu-reality series that follows the rise of R&B singer Keyshia Cole -- will also premiere this October; Sunday Best, an American Idol-like search for the country's next great gospel singer, will premiere Tuesday, October 2 at8PM ET/PT; and Living the Life of Marley, a new docu-reality series that will follow the life of Bob Marley's son Ky-Mani Marley as he prepares to release his new album, will debut this fall.
