Hit the Floor

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.

Check out the Hit the Floor teaser below:

    watch it only last 2 episodes because it’s not a bunch of ghetto trashy lazy black women fighting.

    it’s so sad that they even need to make a notation saying “scripted series” SMH

    Why yes. I will watch it solely for Kimberly Elise.

  • Mademoiselle

    The teaser tells me nothing, and Shadow & Act’s description of the plot sounds kind of boring. I’m thinking this will be one of those shows made for men to watch on mute. (sorry for how pessimistic that sounds, but that’s my honest impression so far)

    I’m just happy that two of the four leads are attractive black women. I love Kimberly Elise too, so I’ll watch

    The world has gone mad.

    Sounds like The Game, except the lead ladies’ characters are all dancers.

    “Why yes. I will watch it solely for Kimberly Elise.”

    Me too.

  • RenJennM

    I’m going to at least check it out. I swear sometimes we can be so damn skeptical! lol At least check out the first episode THEN make your assessment.

    Too bad, it could have been good. It’s not the actors.. The promo was laughable. That’s a clue.
