Boomerang is a comedy-drama television show created by Lena Waithe and Ben Cory Jones, which premiered on BET in 2019. The show is based on the 1992 romantic-comedy film of the same name, produced by Eddie Murphy. The show follows the lives of a group of millennials who work at the marketing agency, Graham Industries. The primary focus is on the lives of Simone Graham (Tetona Jackson) and Bryson Broyer (Tequan Richmond), who are the children of Jacqueline Broyer (Robin Givens), the original lead character of the movie.

Simone is a driven and ambitious executive who is determined to make a name for herself in the industry without relying on her father or his legacy. She is smart, hardworking, and has a no-nonsense attitude. Her life is complicated by her on-and-off again relationship with Bryson, who is her best friend and also works at the same company.

Bryson is a charming and handsome ladies' man with a kind heart. He is also an art school dropout and a struggling graphic artist who is trying to find his footing in life. He is perpetually in love with Simone, but their relationship is strained due to their conflicting personalities.

Joining Simone and Bryson at Graham Industries are Crystal Garrett (Brittany Inge), a sassy and ambitious executive assistant, David Wright (RJ Walker), a quirky and nerdy software engineer; and Tia Reed (Lala Milan), a social media manager who is outspoken and unapologetic about her opinions.

The show has a diverse cast and explores contemporary themes such as gender, race, sexuality, class, and ambition. It deftly weaves these themes into the storylines without being preachy or pedantic.

The show is set in Atlanta, Georgia, and features beautiful locations and landmarks that are unique to the city. The show's soundtrack is also noteworthy, with a mix of old-school and new-school hip-hop, R&B, and soul music.

The show has received mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike, with some praising the writing, acting, and production values, while others have criticized it for its lack of originality and character development.

Overall, Boomerang is an entertaining and engaging show that is worth watching. It balances comedy and drama with great music and visuals, making it a treat for the senses. The show is relatable, thought-provoking, and highly enjoyable, making it a great addition to anyone's watchlist.

Boomerang is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (18 episodes). The series first aired on February 12, 2019.
