Paula Patton‘s 2019 BET+ legal thriller Sacrifice is getting the series treatment at BET.

The network announced on Monday that Patton’s film, which was the streaming service’s first original movie, will continue on as a 10-episode series. It will follow Patton as Daniella Hernandez, a successful L.A. entertainment attorney who must deal with “the nefarious lives of her rich and famous clients.”

Marques Houston, James Trevena Brown, Veronika Bozeman, Altonio Jackson, Liliana Montenegro, Michael Toland and Nelson Bonilla, who also starred in the film, are set to return for the series.

“I am excited to reprise the role of Daniella Hernandez, her strength and ability to overcome incredible challenges is inspiring, and I am grateful for the opportunity to continue working with BET,” said Patton in a statement. “It is a wonderful experience to work with our cast and crew to create characters and stories that entertain and move people.”

There is no word on if Sacrifice will land on BET or BET+.
