Being Terry Kennedy

Terry Kennedy’s star is definitely on the rise. The 25-year-old, who many know from the MTV show Viva La Bam, was recently immortalized in his second video game Skate 3, sponsored by Baker Skateboards, Supra Shoes, Venture Trucks and Boost Mobile. He also has a line of skate shoes with Supra Footwear Co., Kr3w Denim Co., along with his own clothing label, Fly Society.
TK’s latest endeavor, a reality show on BET, is called Being Terry Kennedy and airs October 12. The show will introduce Kennedy to some while giving his fans insight into his world as he builds his wealth and navigates his fame in the eyes of his family and his community and prepares to launch a clothing line and break ground on a skate park in Watts, California.

“It’s about me becoming a mogul in skateboarding and conquering so much through that like music, fashion and actually being a family rooted person throughout all of it,” says Kennedy.

 Kennedy didn’t begin skateboarding until he was 14 years-old after he saw how successful a childhood friend, pro skater Evan Hernandez, became in eighth grade. It was only a couple of years before the young skater became a professional skater, becoming a part of Pharrell William’s Ice Cream skating team.

Being Terry Kennedy is premiering on BET Tuesday October 12th at 10 PM/9C.
