I wondered what happened to this project...Announce last summer, VH1 ordered Kimberly Elise's scripted hour-long drama 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.
