Kimberly Elise’s Hour-Long VH1 Scripted Drama Series Gets 1st Teaser + Premiere Date

Kimberly Elise's Hour-Long VH1 Scripted Drama Series Gets 1st Teaser + Premiere Date

Here’s a first teaser (emphasis on “teaser”) for the VH1-ordered Kimberly Elise scripted hour-long drama Hit The Floor (previously-titled Bounce), which co-stars newcomer Taylour Paige, Charlotte Ross, Logan Browninghas and Dean Cain.

Sanaa Hamri directed the pilot episode of a series that will focus on the lives and loves of a team of professional basketball dancers.

Bounce 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. 

The cast also includes Valery OrtizKatherine BailessJonathan McDaniel and McKinley Freeman

VH1 has now set the premiere date for Hit The Floor for MondayMay 27

In a 2012 interview, Elise rejected the interviewer’s suggestion that Bounce may be more like one of VH1’s reality TV series; Kimberly quickly dismissed that idea (can’t blame her), and instead said that it’s more like Black Swan, the dark, fantastical, Oscar-winning film (Best Actress for Natalie Portman) directed by Darren Aronofsky

She later clarified that it’s not as dark as Black Swan, but that it’s similar in the sense that it gives the audience a glimpse at what goes on behind-the-scenes, the mechanics of it all, with the cast of pro dancers that make up the show; and also that it IS indeed a scripted series, not a reality TV show.

But overall, she seemed really excited about it.

It’s been called “VH1’s biggest scripted effort to date.”

Here’s the teaser:
