TV show description:
This comedic series follows the life of a hard working, young basketball star who is thrust into the limelight after signing a huge contract with a pro basketball team in Atlanta.
Cam Calloway (Jessie T. Usher) is a basketball phenom in his early 20’s. He’s come a long way from the Boston projects. His next big challenge is deciding who to help (or not help) on his way up.
Cam’s cousin, best friend, and confidant, Reggie Vaughn (RonReaco Lee) is both loyal and watchful. It’s his job to protect Cam and to make sure that he stays focused and stays away from distractions that includes his own family members.They confront the challenges of carrying opportunistic family members and their strong ties to the impoverished community that they come from.
M-Chuck (Erica Ash) is Cam’s older sister, his staunch defender, and biggest fan. Accompanying the family to Atlanta, she’s a forthright, blunt, and loyal sibling who’s suspicious of the traps of fame and its impact on her brother. Her boldness often chafes against the expectations the city has for the family being new Atlanta Royalty — and also the Cam “brand” that Reggie works hard to foster.
Beautiful and refined, Missy Vaughn (Teyonah Parris) starts to live a good life for her and Reggie in Atlanta. Unfortunately, she’d rather not be there. Whether it’s getting ZCam involved in charities or picking a country club for her and Reggie, Missy’s social awareness is sometimes out of place with the misfit s of Cam’s family.
Cam’s very proud mother is Cassie Calloway (Tichina Arnold), a woman who is very ready to live a comfortable life. She’s brash and unafraid of the consequences of her actions. Still, she is the rock of her family and wants to do what’s right.
Uncle Julius (Mike Epps) is the family’s de facto patriarch and Cassie’s brother. He’s going to enjoy his nephew’s success but would be there for the family even if the good life went away.
