With some members of the original cast still on the hook for the new show, the world has been buzzing about the potential direction of the show. With the departure of Tia Mowry , who played Melanie, and her tumultuous relationship with Poch Hall's Derwin, fans were left wondering what would become of the rest of the characters.
Well, now we know.
Via Shadow and Act:
The series features original series stars Wendy Raquel Robinson as sports agent Tasha Mack and Hosea Chanchez as footballer Malik Wright, as well as newcomers Adriyan Rae as Brittany Pitts, the daughter of Jason and Kelly Pitts, Vaughn Hebron as Jamison Fields, an undrafted free agent, Analisa Velez as Raquel Navarro, Brittany’s best friend and Toby Sandeman as Garret Evans, the top football player in the league.
The official description is as follows: “The new series will relocate from San Diego to Las Vegas and will see new players offer a modern-day examination of Black culture through the prism of pro football. The team will tackle racism, sexism, classism and more as they fight for fame, fortune, respect and love—all while trying to maintain their souls as they each play The Game.”
