BET Moving Forward with Uptown Records Mini Series

Last year BET announced they were producing a mini series about Andre Harrell and Uptown Records [click here if you missed that].

BET is moving forward with the project following Andre's shocking death...

BET execs tell Variety,
“We are mourning the loss of a cultural icon, Andre Harrell, a chief architect of the modern hip-hop and R&B sound.”
“Andre was tremendously excited about sharing the origin story of Uptown Records, and its pivotal role in the urban music landscape. With his tragic passing, BET is committed to ensuring that the Uptown limited series event tells both the Uptown story and Andre’s story — that of the incredible music innovator, man and friend to so many.”
