Relocating from San Diego to Sin City, 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.

Wendy Raquel Robinson and Hosea Chanchez return as Tasha Mack and Malik Wright respectively, with Adriyan Rae, Vaughn Hebron, Analisa Velez and Toby Sandeman also starring and fan favorites with Pooch Hall and Coby Bell making special appearances.

Wendy Raquel Robinson is a Best Actress NAACP Image Award recipient and a 2021 Emmy-nominated executive producer.

Feature film credits include “A Weekend with The Family,” “Miss Congeniality,” “Something New,” “Rebound,” “Two Can Play That Game,” and “A Christmas Surprise.”
