Flavor Flav taking "Tales" to the small screen

LAS VEGAS (Hollywood Reporter) – Rapper/reality TV star Flavor Flav and filmmaker Deon Taylor have signed a deal to turn their BET movie "Nite Tales" into an anthology television series.

"Nite Tales," described as "30-minute tales of irony and twists," originated with the BET movie that aired on Halloween and is set for DVD release February 3 by BET, Paramount and Deon Taylor Enterprises.

The Flav-hosted "Tales" marks the first project to come out of TriStar Media, a new joint venture between syndicator Trifecta Entertainment & Media, headed by CEO Hank Cohen, and Dennis Ray's Star Media, which sells advertising time on syndicated series, specializing in the urban marketplace.

The partners will present "Tales," Trifecta's first scripted co-production, at the National Association of Television Program Executives' 2009 Market & Conference, which kicks off Monday (January 26) in Las Vegas.
