Former The Young and the Restless actors Eva Marcille (Ex-Tyra Hamilton) and Christian Keyes (Ex-Ripley Turner) are teaming up to star in BET+ and Tyler Perry Studios' upcoming 10-episode drama All The Queen's Men. The series is based on Keyes' popular novel Ladies Night.
All The Queen's Men centers on ruthless nightclub owner Marilyn "Madam" DeVille (Marcille). From the press release: "Madam is a fierce businesswoman who is at the top of her game in the nightclub industry and is surrounded by a band of trusted employees who are down to make sure that she is successful. But Madam, a self-proclaimed boss, soon discovers that more money and more power mean more problems. Will Madam retain reign as she navigates this dangerous and sexy society? Will the sensuous world of exotic dancing cost Madam her queendom and potentially her life?"
All The Queen's Men is one of the first shows from Tyler Perry Studios' scripted development arm, Pitch Black Development LLC, headed by the studio's President of Production & Development, Michelle Sneed. The series receives an unprecedented episode order increase by BET+ from eight half-hour episodes to ten one-hour episodes.
Here's the full cast breakdown:
EVA MARCILLE as "MADAM (Marilyn Deville)", a savvy, powerful, uncompromising businesswoman who owns a high-class male strip club that she runs fairly but with a firm hand; she's unafraid to do whatever it is she has to do to keep her business going.
SKYH ALVESTER BLACK as "AMP "ADDICTION ANTHONY", a dancer with a hidden past who has found difficulty getting hired after being released from prison, so he goes to work as a bouncer/doorman in Madam's club, Eden.
CANDACE MAXWELL as "DJ DIME", the resident DJ at Club Eden. She is ambitious and looks to Madam as a mentor.
RACQUEL PALMER as "BLUE", Madam's chief of security. Blue is frequently seen at Madam's side when things get a little dicey.
MICHAEL "BOLO" BOLWAIRE as "DOC", one of the male strippers at Club Eden. Doc gets along well with his fellow dancers and a little too well with one of Eden's patrons.
KEITH "FATAL ATTRACTION" SWIFT as "BABYFACE", the oldest dancer of the group, though he doesn't look it. He's questioning the number of days he has left at the club and his many client entanglements cause him plenty of drama.
DION ROME as "EL FUEGO", one of the dancers at Madam's Club Eden who is a bit flirtatious with Madam. He loves who he loves and is quite the techy.
JEREMY "MASTERPIECE" WILLIAMS as "MIDNIGHT", a confident and tough male stripper who sparks a different vibe in Madam than the other strippers. She enjoys him though it's hard to say how personal their relationship is.
CHRISTIAN KEYES as "THE CONCIERGE", a calmly intense hitman, and member of the Damascus family, hired to blackmail Madam.
All The Queen's Men is executive produced by Sneed and Keyes. Elon D. Johnson serves as co-executive producer for Tyler Perry Studios. Kim Fields Morgan directed the first four episodes of the series and also serves as consulting producer. The series airs Thursday, Sept. 9 on BET+.
