VH1 has renewed its second scripted series Hit The Floor (formerly known as Bounce) for a second season, which is set to air Summer 2014.
Created by James LaRosa, Hit The Floor follows the alluring lives and loves of the Los Angeles Devil Girls, the premier dance team in all of professional basketball. The series revolves around 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), 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), 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.
“We always knew that “Hit the Floor” was a strong project from the beginning and we are thrilled that so many of our viewers agree with us,” said Jill Holmes, VH1’s Senior Vice President of West Coast Production and Development. “With creator James LaRosa at the helm, everyone in front of and behind the camera has created a compelling, addictive series with high energy dance numbers, and we can’t wait to continue the storyline that’s made it the #1 cable show in its time period among adults.”
The renewal comes as VH1 is ramping up its scripted programming slate and after the first season of Hit The Floor proved to be a ratings hit for the network. The series, which has been averaging 1.9 million viewers and a 1.2 A18-49 rating, currently ranks as the highest rated new summer scripted cable series for Adults 18-49, the #1 program in cable during its Monday night timeslot among Adults 18-49 (excluding sports and specials), Adults 18-34, Women 18-34 and Women 18-49.
