BET’s 'College Hill 4' Premieres Tuesday

March 5, 2007 — The University of the Virgin Islands takes center stage as the setting for campus activities on “College Hill 4,” the fourth season of Black Entertainment Television’s hit reality series.
“College Hill 4” premieres March 6 at 11 p.m. on Innovative Cable TV’s Channel 35 on St. Thomas, Channel 45 on St. Croix and on Choice Communications’ Channel 10 in both districts, according to a news release from BET.
"Produced in collaboration with Edmonds Entertainment, 'College Hill' captures the essence of a select group of multicultural students attending a historically black college or university and documents their lifestyle as they interact on and off campus," the news release said.
Producers cast students for the show in September. (See "BET Reality Show Looking to Cast 'Interesting' UVI Students.")
"The 'College Hill 4' cast of eight — four transfer students from the U.S. mainland and UVI’s own Devon 'Chicky' Luis, Idesha Browne, Andres St. Kitts and Vanessa Hamilton — offer viewers a dramatic slice-of-life adventure filmed in and around St. Thomas," the news release said.
The fourth season of “College Hill” was filmed during UVI’s fall 2006 semester. The series features scenes shot at UVI, as well as of the students interacting “at home” in a palatial villa they all shared, and shows them enjoying select activities throughout the territory.
When “College Hill” debuted in 2003, it ranked as BET’s highest-rated original series premiere in the network’s 25-year history. The third season of “College Hill” was the highest-rated season of the series to date.
“College Hill 4” will feature two back-to-back half-hour episodes for its hour-long premiere Tuesday, the news release said.
The BET Network reaches more than 80 million households and can be seen in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean.
