Tracee Ellis Ross will be return­ing to TV with Reed Between The Lines, a new half-hour com­edy green-lit by BET that will be shot in Atlanta. In the new show, Ross plays Dr. Carla Reed, a busy psy­chi­a­trist, wife, and mother, who’s strug­gling to bal­ance career and family.

Ross will also pro­duce, along­side Arthur Har­ris and Kel­lie Grif­fin, the for­mer head-writer for Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.

Reed Between The Lines con­tin­ues BET’s re-entry into the orig­i­nal scripted series arena along­side The Queen Lat­i­fah pro­duced Let’s Stay Together and rein­car­nated Girl­friends’ spin-off The Game. Pro­duc­tion on the pilot is slated to start in Atlanta on August 11th.

Girl­friends, Ross’ last TV series, was can­celed two years ago after an 8 sea­son run on UPN and then The CW. She can next be seen in the Off-Broadway Play, “Love Loss and What I Wore,” writ­ten by Nora and Delia Ephron, as part of the rotat­ing cast along­side Rosie O’Donnell, Sherri Shep­herd, Jane Lynch, Brooke Shields, and a slew of others.
