History has officially been made! BET has announced that Gary Owen has broken the color barrier by becoming the first white lead in a series in the network’s 36 year history.
“This is the new face of the American family,” Owen said, before joking, “I feel like Ben Carson at the GOP debate.”
Owen will star in the reality show, “Gary Owen Family” which will follow the comedian and his culturally blended family.
The show will be a part of BET’s new lineup of shows for its 2016-2017 season.
