Kym Whitley and Tisha Campbell will star in the new Bounce TV comedy series Act Your Age, with special guest star Yvette Nicole Brown.
The half-hour comedy follows three successful women in their 50s in the Washington D.C./Northern Virginia-area, who find themselves at personal crossroads and decide the best way forward in life is together.
Per Bounce, Whitley plays Bernadette, a no-nonsense real estate developer. Campbell portrays Keisha, the wild card of the group who is always up to something. And Brown plays Angela, the former first lady of Norfolk, Virginia, who is looking to redefine her life after being left widowed by her husband, a revered career politician.
The cast also includes Mariah Robinson and Nathan Anderson as the 20-something children of Angela and Bernadette.
Bounce, a broadcast and multi-platform entertainment network serving African Americans, is producing the series in partnership with MGM.
Alyson Fouse created the 16-episode sitcom and serves as showrunner and executive producer. Ken Ornstein is co-executive producer. Mark Burnett, Barry Poznick and Bradley Gardner are producers.
“The opportunity to do Act Your Age with Kym, Tisha and Yvette on Bounce, a network that has made me feel so comfortable being my authentic self, means the world to me,” said Fouse. “We’ve built a world where the stories of Black women in the prime of their lives can be both funny and heartfelt; a world where individually they shine but they also show support for one another.”
Act Your Age has started production in Los Angeles and will premiere on Bounce in the spring of 2023.
