Tasha Mack is calling shots and changing the rules in the new teaser trailer for The Game reboot.

Paramount+ dropped the video Tuesday giving fans a first look at Wendy Raquel Robinson back in character as the fast-talking sports agent. “I’m changing the game,” Tasha says as she enjoys the good life on a private jet with a drink in her hand.

Hosea Chanchez also returns as her footballer son Malik Wright. “Yo. You’re still trying to make it into the league?” Malik says to an NFL hopeful who refuses to be deterred.

According to Paramount+, The Game is relocating from San Diego to Las Vegas for the revival.

Here’s the official description: “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.”

As previously reported, fellow series stars Brittany Daniel (Cheaper by the Dozen) and Pooch Hall (Ray Donovan) will make special appearances, reprising their roles as Kelly Pitts and Derwin Davis.

Kevin Bray (Insecure) will direct the first two episodes.
