VH1 is continuing its promotion of scripted series alongside its popular reality television franchises. The network ordered an hour-long drama from actress Kimberly Elise. Hit the Floor, previously titled Bounce, co-stars Taylour Paige, Charlotte Ross and Dean Cain.
Shadow & Act describes the show focusing on the “lives and loves of a team of professional basketball dancers.”
Hit The Floor follows the lives and loves of the Los Angeles Devil Girls, the dance team for the No.1 professional basketball team in the country. It centers on 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 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.
Acclaimed director Sanaa Hamri is at the helm of the pilot episode of “Vh1’s biggest scripted effort to date.” The series will premiere Monday, May 27 9/8c.
