BET Networks in conjunction with Irv ‘Gotti’ Lorenzo announce the season two global premiere of hit original series, TALES. The series will make a global return, with a two-hour premiere. The debut episode, Brothers, brings a new and exciting twist for the series, by serving as the launchpad for an unreleased Kanye West song exclusive to the show’s soundtrack. Fans can tune-in to BET and MTV channels globally and on VH1’s international channels on Tuesday, July 2. BET and the international channels will air the first look at 9:00 PM E.T., with MTV airing in a later timeslot.
