Plot Synopsis

Written, directed and executive produced by Tyler Perry, THE OVAL is a one-hour drama series that centers on the first family in the White House, focusing on the next-level corruption. Hunter Franklin is the newly elected President of The United States and he is joined by: his wife, Victoria; his beautiful and spoiled daughter, Gayle, who is a rebellious and defiant wild child; and his son, Jason, who is a troubled young man. This picture-perfect couple has it all! Money, status, and pure bliss flank the Mr. & Mrs. However, behind closed doors, they are anything but flawless -- with lies, cheating and messy mayhem running amuck. The series opens with the first family preparing for the inauguration ball, when tragic events threaten the family and the White House staff. After a 2.5-month break, THE OVAL returned with new episodes on Wednesday, May 6, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT on BET, with a simulcast on BET Her. In the spring premiere, "Fear of God," chickens come home to roost for the President as past sins come back to haunt Hunter and Victoria.

The 22-episode second season of THE OVAL premiered on Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at 10:30pm ET/PT on BET, with a simulcast on BET Her. Season 2 continues to lift the veil of what can happen when the leader of the free world, his wife and family are crazed maniacs. In the season opener, "A Little Girl Talk," Laura's grisly discovery scares her almost to death; Maude gives Gayle a reality check on how things will progress going forward; Richard presses Nancy for answers she's not ready to give. After a 2-month break, THE OVAL returned with new episodes on Tuesday, July 20, 2021 at 9pm ET/PT on BET, with a simulcast on BET Her. In the summer premiere, "The Target," Barry is desperate to find his daughter. Hunter and Victoria share a power struggle concerning a terrorist. Lilly lays down a few ground rules for Donald as they discuss the terms of their marriage.

Season 3 of THE OVAL premiered on Tuesday, October 12, 2021 at 9pm ET/PT on BET, with a simulcast on BET Her. In the season opener, "An Eye For An Eye," The President and First lady barely dodge death but continue in their ways. Hunter vows for revenge, Victoria has lustful eyes on Sam, and Jason is ready to finish the job someone else started: taking his mother out.

THE OVAL returned for its fourth season on Tuesday, October 11, 2022 at 9pm ET/PT on BET and BET Her. In the season opener, "The Package," Victoria receives disturbing news from the White House doctor concerning Jason. Donald learns Grip is not the indestructible man he thought he was.
On Tuesday, March 14, 2023 at 9pm ET/PT, BET premiered "The Last Strike," the Season 4 finale of THE OVAL, with a simulcast on BET Her. In the midst of a dramatic situation, Richard is presented with information that turns his world upside down; Jason and David have their backs against the wall, with a slim chance of escaping.
