On the show, Givens plays Stephanie Carlisle, a determined lawyer and the wife of Atlanta Mayor Evan Lancaster (Brian White). While Evan will do almost anything to increase his political power, Stephanie is quietly making moves of her own, hoping to take over her family’s prestigious law firm, despite her father’s objections.
In addition to Givens and White, Ambitions also stars Essence Atkins (Marlon), Kendrick Cross (Acrimony), Brely Evans (Being Mary Jane) and Erica Page (Bad Dad Rehab).
The show is the second collaboration between Packer and OWN, who rolled out Ready To Love earlier this month. Production on Ambitions is already underway in Atlanta.
We can’t wait!
