Two of the most successful African Americans on the planet are looking to add to their portfolio.



According to Variety, media moguls Tyler Perry and Byron Allen are looking to purchase a majority stake at BET as Paramount Global is looking to sell the network called Black Entertainment Television.



Reportedly, Perry already produces a large portion of BET’s programming and already owns a minority stake in the network.



In fact, every time you watch BET there’s a “Tyler Perry Presents” show airing.
