LeToya Luckett has another major role to work on this year. Following "Single Ladies" and the upcoming series "Ballers," Luckett has booked a role in the upcoming Drumline follow up "Drumline: A New Beat."
Slated to air on VH1, with Nick Cannon as executive producer, the movie will include a number of new faces and a few memorable faces from the original.
"Drumline: A New Beat" will capture the sound and spirit of the first film while welcoming a whole new class to the Atlanta A & T drumline. The story follows Danielle (Dani) Bolton, an upper class Brooklyn girl who defies her parents in order to attend Atlanta A & T so she can join – and revitalize – their once-prominent drumline. Dani's quest to become the first female section leader of the drumline in the school's history will be hampered by upperclassmen (including her cousin, Tyree), her feelings for fellow band mate and rival, Jayven, and the school's crosstown competitors," reports VH1.
Leonard Roberts will return to his Drumline roots as Sean Taylor, a charismatic and determined new Band Director looking to make his mark at his alma mater while navigating the ghosts of his past.
Letoya Luckett joins the cast as Dr. Nia Phillips, the beautiful, intelligent, and determined dean at Atlanta A&T with former romantic ties to Sean. Her support of Sean's return to lead A&T's band proves to be difficult as the Panthers take on a rival band led by Dr. Phillips' ex-husband, and Sean's brother, Kevin Taylor.
"Drumline: A New Beat" is set to premiere Fall 2014 on VH1.
