In mid-July, Hollywood mogul Tyler Perry built a bubble known as "Camp Quarantine" at his Georgia-based studio. The bubble made it possible for his casts and crews to be able to produce content, including season two of Sistas in the safest way possible, making Sistas the first of his shows to return to a full production.


We spoke with Sistas star Chido Nwokocha, who said the whole filming experience is completely different.

'Sistas' Returns For Season Two 📺

Sistas' Instagram account announced the renewal of the BET show on May 27, 2020. Sistas season two production began on July 15 and wrapped less than two weeks later, ahead of schedule.

Sistas follows the lives of four, single women as they explore their love and work lives. This show stands as a coming-of-age television show for young, Black women and received amazing reviews for their first season.

Tyler Perry Opens "Camp Quarantine" 🌳

In an Instagram post, Tyler Perry Studios shared a video of the cast and crew's experience at Camp Q, where they were tested every four days, had socially distanced meetings, and constantly wore masks. To keep morale up, the studio even provided food trucks and socially distanced outdoor movie nights.

Over the two weeks of production, no member of the cast or crew tested positive for COVID-19.

Chido Nwokocha's Time At Camp ⛺️

Chido Nwokocha plays Gary Marshall Borders on Sistas and received the camp-like treatment while filming season two!

"It was just crazy because you're literally in this bubble for the period of time and you're not going anywhere. You got to find other things to occupy your time and keep yourself busy. Everybody was in good spirits and wanted to make it work."

As for living in "the bubble," Nwokocha said,

"I woke up, I worked out, got me food. There was food there...that's all I needed to know."

The Stars Share Their Time On Set 🎬

KJ Smith, who plays one of the leading ladies, Andi Barnes, showed her and her set roommate preparing breakfast, while in their temporary home.

Ebony Obsidian, who plays another one of the leading ladies, Karen Mott, posts a photo of herself at the studio homes, which appear to be in very nice shape.

Tyler Perry inspires many creators to think outside of the box and is an innovator throughout the film and television industry.

Sistas returns to BET on October 14 at 9 pm.

Little People, Big World

Youtube

Kicking off this week's Reality Reel, TLC's Little People, Big World is preparing to say goodbye to its latest season and part of the family's past. The show, which follows the Roloffs as they upkeep their family farm while navigating life at four feet tall, has been airing since 2006.

Over fourteen years later, the family is wrapping up on season 21.

This ending of a season is especially bittersweet as the Roloffs are packing up to move and saying goodbye to the farm and family home.

Amy Rollof told us how hard it has been to make the adjustment.

"You sometimes don't think that you can get through it. And moving...I was like "where am I gonna go?" Like, my life is forever changing."

She went on to reveal the hardest part of it all...

"It's always been hard for me to watch my own show. To tell you the truth that is the hardest thing about doing this show for so many years."

Counting down to the season finale, Amy has been doing Instagram live sessions where she answers fans questions while sharing some favorite recipes. She currently runs her own shop called "Amy Roloff's Little Kitchen" where she sells home goods, kitchen supplies, apparel and more.

Check out this new series: I Love a Mama's Boy

The trailer is as awkward as it sounds. On this new show, viewers follow a few couples across the country who bud heads over who the most important woman is in a relationship. While the girlfriends are certain their priorities should come first, their boyfriends are convinced that mother knows best.

We talked to just one of the couples, Emily and Shekeb, ahead of the season premiere.

Explaining the situation, Emily said:

"I'm never, you know, prioritized in his life. You know...in my eyes, I wanna be number one."

Shekeb gave his response:

"It's not so bad though. I'm trying to keep the balance."

We hope to see the two find some middle ground on the show!

I Love a Mama's Boy premiers October 35th on TLC.
