TV One Thriller ‘Montross: Blood Rules’ Takes on Dangerous Family Secrets


Every family has secrets and in the new TV One thriller Montross: Blood Rules, those secrets have dire consequences.

The original movie focuses on attorney Robyn Montross (played by Dawn Halfkenny), who returns to her hometown of Evansdale at her father’s request. Instead of enjoying a happy family reunion, Robyn uncovers the web of lies that helped secure her family’s power and prominence in the community for generations. Consumed by guilt, Robyn is forced to face a dark secret that has haunted her for years.

In addition to Halfkenny, the cast includes Richard Brooks (as Cordell “Dell” Montross, Sr.), Dwayne Boyd (as CJ “Jackie” Montross), Sheléa Frazier (as Nia Montross), Renelle Nicole (as Monty), Jon Eyez (as Teddy), Leslie Black (as Sedi), Kamel Goffin (as Travis), and Victoria Rowell plays Elaine Montross.
