Bounce, the nation’s fastest-growing television network designed for African-American audiences, will premiere its new original comedy Last Call on Monday, January 14 with back-to-back episodes at 9pm and 9:30pm ET.
Created by Bobbcat Films and Roger Bobb (Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns and Mann & Wife), Last Call stars Charles Malik Whitfield (Empire, If Loving You is Wrong) as Darius Knight, an ex-NFL player who – after discovering his business manager ran off with all his money – opens a comedy club in the backroom of his only remaining investment – a Baltimore bar named Last Call. The bar regulars are then forced to share their favorite watering hole with a parade of comics while Darius climbs out of debt.
Principal cast members include T.C. Carson (Living Single), Carl Payne (Martin), Brely Evans (Being Mary Jane), Mishon Ratliff (Lincoln Heights) and Erica Page (Office Christmas Party). Season one will feature guest appearances from Towanda Braxton (Braxton Family Values), Pierre (How to Be a Player), Vanessa Fraction (Barbershop 2), Karlous Miller (Wild’N Out), David Otunga (WWE Raw) and Teresa “Top Notch” Nelson (Wild’N Out). Cynthia Bailey (Real Housewives of Atlanta) and Lisa Wu (Hollywood Divas) also make appearances on Last Call this season.
