Did you watch – whether online, or on TV? If you did, your thoughts?

Sanaa Hamri directed the pilot episode of a show that will focus 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. 

The cast also includes Valery OrtizKatherine BailessJonathan McDaniel, Rob Riley and McKinley Freeman

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