Hit the Floor is an American television drama series created by James LaRosa which explores the world of professional basketball and the alluring lives and loves of the Los Angeles Devil Girls, the premier dance team in all of professional basketball.
The series asks the question: How much are you willing to sacrifice to make all your dreams come true?
The Los Angeles Devils are the number one team in the league. When the arena lights go on all of Hollywood comes out to support the million dollar players. But in this city these men share the fame, adrenaline, money, sex and power with their dancers, the Devil Girls.
At the heart of Hit The Floor is Ahsha (Taylour Paige), a sheltered young woman who joins the team against the wishes of her mother Sloane (Kimberly Elise), who knows this treacherous, tempting world all too well having been a Devil Girl herself.
Olivia (Charlotte Ross) is the shrewd squad manager, Jelena (Logan Browning) is the ruthless, star captain who won't let anyone else share the spotlight and Pete Davenport (Dean Cain) is the former All-Star who's come back to coach his old team only to have to contend with the girls both stealing the spotlight and distracting his players.
All the while, the mystery surrounding the disappearance of missing Devil Girls dancer Mia threatens to blow the roof off the entire L.A. Devils organisation.
The first season stars Dean Cain, Kimberly Elise, Charlotte Ross, Taylour Paige, Logan Browning, Valery Ortiz, Katherine Bailess, Jonathan McDaniel, McKinley Freeman, Rob Riley and Don Stark.
Charlotte Ross left after the first season and thre new starring characters were added: Lionel (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe), Coach Davenport's estranged, starlet wife; Zero (Adam Senn), a God-loving superstar player who is immediately drawn to bad girl Jelena; and Jude (Brent Antonello), an ambitious junior agent who's come to Devils Arena with a very big agenda.
