Get ready because a reboot of the popular CW and BET series, The Game is coming!
The series, originally created by Mara Brock Akil will reimagine the original cast members including Wendy Raquel Robinson and Hosea Chanchez . The two will return to their roles as Tasha Mack and Malik Wright.
Deadline has reported that Brock Akil will return as executive producer and KElsey Grammer and Tom Russo of Grammnet NH Productions will executive produce as well. The reboot will be a half-hour program, taking place in Las Vegas through the lens of pro-football.
In an official statement, Brock Akil said, “Fifteen years ago, I created The Game and am so proud of the success we had, and that I was able to create characters and stories that resonated with so many people.”
She added, “I couldn’t be happier about leaving my beloved characters like Tasha Mack and Malik Wright in the hands of Devon, Wendy, and Hosea, who I know will build off of the rich foundation the show has.”
The original series aired back in 2006 as a comedy-drama series on UPN/CW. It chronicled the lives of football players and the wives of the San Diego Sabers. The original cast included Tia Mowry, Pooch Hall, Brittany Daniel, and Cody Bell.
