‘Hit The Floor’ Series Premiere Date Announced

This summer the cable network VH1 will be bringing their second new dramatic scripted series – Hit the Floor – to their primetime schedule. The series will follow the alluring lives and loves of the Los Angeles Devil Girls, the premier dance team in all of professional basketball. This drama will debut on Monday, May 27 at 9/8c.

‘Hit The Floor’ explores the sexy world of professional basketball and the dancers who make the fans (and players) go wild. The Los Angeles Devils are the number one team in the league. When the arena lights go on all of Hollywood comes out to support the million dollar players. But in this city these men share the fame, adrenalin, money, sex and power with their dancers, the Devil Girls.

At the heart of ‘Hit The Floor’ is Ahsha (newcomer Taylour Paige), a sheltered young woman who joins the team against the wishes of her mother Sloane (actress Kimberly Elise from ‘Close to Home’), who knows this treacherous, tempting world all too well having been a Devil Girl herself. Olivia (actress Charlotte Ross from ‘NYPD Blue’) is the shrewd squad manager, while Jelena (actress Logan Browning from ‘Meet the Browns’) is the ruthless, star captain who won’t let anyone else share the spotlight and Pete Davenport (actor Dean Cain from ‘Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman’) 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. All the while, the mystery surrounding the disappearance of missing Devil Girls dancer Mia threatens to blow the roof off the entire L.A. Devils organization.

‘Hit The Floor’ was created by James LaRosa, who also serves as Executive Producer of the series along with Maggie Malina and Bryan Johnson. VH1’s executives Jill Holmes and Jeff Olde are also executive producers. The pilot was written by James LaRosa and directed by Sanaa Hamri.

Again, ‘Hit The Floor’ will air its series premiere on VH1 on May 27 at 9/8c.
