VH1 turned the lifestyle of a “basketball wife” mainstream with their hit reality show, “Basketball Wives.” One of the first story lines from season one involved Royce Reed, a former Miami Heat and Orlando Magic dancer coming into the world of the wives and exes. It was said that wives look at dancers as potential threats. A new VH1 scripted series is now going to explore life from a dancer’s view.
HIT THE FLOOR follows the lives and loves of the Los Angeles Devil Girls, the premiere dance team in all of professional basketball. At its heart is Ahsha, a sheltered young woman who joins the team against the wishes of her mother Sloane, who knows this treacherous, tempting world all too well having been a Devil Girl herself. Olivia is the shrewd squad manager, Jelena is the star dancer who won’t let anyone else share the spotlight and Pete Davenport is the former All-Star who’s come back to coach his old team.
The show stars Kimberly Elise as “Sloane” along with newcomer Taylour Paige, Charlotte Ross (NYPD Blue), Logan Browning (Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns), and Dean Cain (Lois & Clark).
