Cover girl of UPTOWN’s Hollywood & Spring Fashion issue? Check. Dr. Carla Reed on BET’s Reed Between the Lines? Check. A lead role in the new NBC drama pilot Bad Girls? Double check.
According to Deadline, the show is adapted from the long-running UK series that centers around a group of unlikely women serving time in federal prison.
Ross will play Rachel, a “high-powered business woman who is now serving time for selling phony mortgages. She delayed having kids because of her career, and now she’s desperate to get pregnant– which isn’t easy in prison.”
Jurnee Smollett will join Ross to play Gwen, a famous rapper living a luxury life until she gets busted by the DEA and is locked up without bail.
There is no word on when production will begin.
