The spin-off from the critically acclaimed BET show “Girlfriends” is back featuring some new actors and a whole lot of drama in BET’s “The Game”. It follows an interesting and unique group of females who all have somewhat of a relationship with professional football players. Reality television shows like “Basketball Wives” and “Mob Wives” has been rumored to have been based off of this show. Writer Mara Brock Akil, known for her producer work on the UPN series “Moesha” back in the 90s has definitely earned herself a high fan base with this interesting and moving show. “The Game” stars actress Tia Mowry-Hardrict as one of the lead females and plays Melanie Barnett. Pooch Hall, as Derwin Davis, Wendy Raquel Robinson as Tasha Mack, Hosea Chanchez and Malik Wright, and Coby Bell as Jason Pitts. Brittany Daniel is in and out of the series as Kelly Pitts, Coby’s ex-wife. Over the past few seasons the TV Show has definitely changed as guest roles become recurring roles and new twists and turns in the story leave the characters almost at the edge of their seats in the series. The Comedy-Drama has turned into a drastically dramatic almost African American 90210. This has given producers a space to be more free in creating new characters and drama filled scenes for more characters to fill the voids.
