Yay For Scripted Series! Kimberly Elise Starring In VH1’s New Show “Bounce”
Though this show sounds like “The Game” reloaded, with fans highly upset at the direction the BET series is going, especially getting rid of Melanie and Derwin, the recent changes could be just enough to send viewers over to its sister channel to catch VH1’s newest creation “Bounce.”
According to a press release:
“Bounce” is a series that follows the alluring lives and loves of the Los Angeles Devil Girls, the premiere dance team in all of professional basketball. The Los Angeles Devils are the number one team in the league. When the stadium lights go up at night all of Hollywood comes out to support the million dollar players; but in this city these men share the fame, adrenalin, money, sex and power with their dancers, the Devil Girls.
At the heart of “Bounce” is Ahsha (Taylour Paige), a sheltered young woman who joins the team against the wishes of her mother Sloane (Kimberly Elise), who knows this treacherous, tempting world all too well having been an original Devil’s Girl herself. Olivia (Charlotte Ross) is the shrewd squad manager, Jelena (Logan Browning) is the ruthless star captain of the dance team who won’t let anyone outshine her and Pete Davenport (Dean Cain) is the former All-Star who’s come back to coach his old team only to have to contend with the girls both stealing the spotlight and distracting his players.
The cast includes: Dean Cain, Kimberly Elise, Charlotte Ross, Taylour Paige, Logan Browning, Valery Ortiz, Katherine Bailess, Jonathan McDaniel and McKinley Freeman.
For all those who have pointed out the poor acting on VH1’s “Single Ladies,” this show should be a welcome addition to the network lineup. We already know how amazing Kimberly Elise is and it will be interesting to see her take on a less serious character than some of her most memorable roles in “Beloved,” “John Q,” “For Colored Girls,” and “Set It Off.” One thing we know you won’t be able to say about this show is the acting is bad.
Sanaa Hamri, the music video and film director behind “Something New,” “Just Wright,” and a host of music videos from Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and Jadakiss directed the series plot and production is set to begin in 2013. This could be a cool show to check out. What do you think?
