"The Quad" (TV show), formerly known as "The Yard," is a drama series on BET that stars Tony Award winners Anika Noni Rose ("Dreamgirls," "The Princess and the Frog") and Ruben Santiago-Hudson ("Billions," "American Gangster") along with actors Jazz Raycole ("The Soul Man," "My Wife and Kids") and newcomer Peyton Alex Smith.

This dynamic series takes viewers inside the unique, culture-filled world of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). The show follows ambitious-yet-troubled Dr. Eva Fletcher (Rose), the newly-elected President of the fictional Georgia A&M University. Upon arriving, Eva is charged with saving the prestigious HBCU from bankruptcy and her twenty-year marriage from crumbling while managing a tumultuous relationship with her rebellious only daughter. A diverse group of freshman also promises to keep Eva's hands full.

The multi-talented cast also includes TV icon Jasmine Guy and Sean Blakemore ("General Hospital") as well as exciting emerging talents — Zoe Renee, Michelle DeFraites, Erica Michelle, Jake Allyn, Larry Rhem, and E. Roger Mitchell.

"The Yard" is production of Rainforest Entertainment and WaterWalk Productions in conjunction with BET Networks. The emotionally-charged series is created by Felicia D. Henderson ("Gossip Girl," "Soul Food") and Charles Holland ("CSI: Miami," "NY Undercover"), based on a concept created by Rob Hardy ("How to Get Away With Murder," "Power"). The show is executive produced by Henderson and Hardy, who will also direct. Co-executive producers on the project include Holland, Will Packer and Mitzi Miller.
