It looks like Tatyana Ali will be even busier in 2010! In addition to starring in the hit BET.com web soap Buppies, and recurring on The Young and the Restless as Devon's girlfriend Roxy, Ali will star in the new Martin Lawrence-produced sitcom Love That Girl, premiering Jan. 16 on TV One. The series, created by Bentley Kyle Evans (Martin, The Jamie Foxx Show), revolves around a divorced, young woman (Ali) who moves back home to work at her dad's real estate firm and live with her unemployed brother, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
According to THR, Evans shot four, 30-minute episodes of the series on a shoestring budget in a converted warehouse over the course of five days. If the eppys achieve a certain rating, TV One will produce more episodes. Glad to see folks taking the power back from Hollyweird!
