NEW YORK, April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --This summer VH1 brings viewers "Hit
The Floor" (formerly "Bounce") a new dramatic scripted series that asks the
question: How much are you willing to sacrifice to make all your dreams come
true? The series follows the alluring lives and loves of the Los Angeles Devil
Girls, the premier dance team in all of professional basketball. The series
will mark VH1's second foray into the hour-long scripted series genre. "Hit
the Floor" stars Dean Cain, Kimberly Elise and Charlotte Ross. The series also
features newcomer Taylour Paige in a starring role. "Hit The Floor" premieres
on Monday, May 27^th at 9PM ET/PT.

"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 (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 a Devil Girl herself. Olivia (Charlotte Ross) is the shrewd
squad manager, Jelena (Logan Browning) is the ruthless, star captain who won't
let anyone else share the spotlight 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. 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.

The cast includes: Dean Cain, Kimberly Elise, Charlotte Ross, Taylour Paige,
Logan Browning, Valery Ortiz, Katherine Bailess, Jonathan McDaniel, McKinley
Freeman, Rob Riley and Don Stark.

"Hit The Floor" follows in the successful primetime heels of VH1's first
hour-long scripted series "Single Ladies," produced by Queen Latifah's Flavor
Unit and Maggie Malina which premiered in May 2011.
