Ric Talks with Star Jackie Long
(Kevin Hart’s Real Husbands of Hollywood)
About this Sizzling New Series.
Games People Play is based on the popular book by Angela Burt-Murray, “Games Divas Play.” The new series is a sexy, stylized drama about the L.A. high life, where everyone plays to win. A desperate basketball wife trying to protect her family, a tenacious journalist struggling to rebuild a tarnished career, and a scandalous groupie looking to become a star all discover that it’s murder trying to stay on top.
The series stars Sarunas J. Jackson as Marcus King, an all-star baller who was able to prepare himself for all aspects of life as a professional athlete, except for one thing — the women. His inability to resist temptation causes what may be irreparable damage to his marriage to Vanessa. Jackie Long plays Kareem Johnson, Marcus’ best friend and assistant, who is a former college basketball standout once destined for fame and fortune. Frustrated by living on the sidelines, he’s willing to risk everything for a shot at the life that should have been his.
