Paramount+, streaming service has announced that its upcoming revival of the groundbreaking series THE GAME will debut on Thursday, November 11th.
According to Urban Bridgez, two new cast members are joining the team: Tim Daly, who will play Colonel Ulysses S. Thatcher, a self-made billionaire, and Toby Sandeman, currently playing Symphony on “Raising Kanan,” will play Garret Evans, the top football player in the league. Fan favorite Coby Bell will make a special appearance reprising his role as former footballer Jason Pitts.
Relocating from San Diego to Sin City, THE GAME returns with a mix of new players and original cast to offer a modern-day examination of Black culture through the prism of pro football. The team will tackle racism, sexism, classism and more as they fight for fame, fortune, respect and love – all while trying to maintain their souls as they each play THE GAME.
THE GAME also stars Wendy Raquel Robinson as sports agent Tasha Mack; Hosea Chanchez as footballer Malik Wright; Adriyan Rae as Brittany Pitts, the daughter of Jason and Kelly Pitts; Vaughn Hebron as Jamison Fields, an undrafted free agent; and Analisa Velez as Raquel Navarro, Brittany’s best friend.
Legacy players Brittany Daniel and Pooch Hall will make special appearances, reprising their roles as Kelly Pitts and Derwin Davis, respectively.
The 10-episode first season of the new series will stream exclusively on Paramount+. All nine seasons of THE GAME, which originally aired on The CW and then BET, are also currently available to binge on Paramount+.
