LOS ANGELES – Tyler Perry’s TBS comedy series “Meet the Browns” is headed to broadcast syndication next year.
Syndicator Debmar-Mercury has cleared the sitcom in more than 70 percent of the U.S. for a September debut on several major station groups, including Fox, Tribune, Weigel, CBS, Capital, Cox, Meredith, Granite and Belo.
“Browns,” based on the prolific writer/director’s 2004 movie, ranks as the No. 1 series on TBS this season among adults aged 18-49, a demographic coveted by advertisers. About 40 episodes have aired since it premiered in January.
