“Years on the streets facing the most dangerous drug dealers have shaped her into a formidable hard charger,” accordign to the description. “She suffers no fools and has a wicked wit to back it up.”
Jones will join current main and recurring cast members Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., Da’Vinchi, Russell Hornsby, Michole Briana White, Myles Truitt, Steve Harris, Wood Harris, Snoop Dogg, Arkeshia Knight (best known as rapper Kash Doll) and Serayah.
This season Jones will also join newcomers La La Anthony and Kelly Hu. Anthony will reprise her Season 1 role of Markisha Taylor, a “the smart, sophisticated and street savvy wife of a powerful Detroit dealer” who develops a risky friendship with Da’Vinchi’s Terry Flenory. Hu will play Det. Veronica Jin, a “smart, complex and tough cop” who is carving out a niche for herself as a Chinese-American female detective in a male world.
The series follows the lives of kingpins and brothers Big Meech and Terry “Southwest” Flenory as they create a dynasty for their family while dealing with the law. According to the official description:
BMF is inspired by true legends who rose from the decaying streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980s and gave birth to one of the most influential crime families in this country. Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory’s charismatic leadership, Terry “Southwest T” Flenory’s business acumen and the fraternal partnership’s vision beyond the drug trade and into the world of hip-hop would render the brothers iconic on a global level. Their unwavering belief in family loyalty would be the cornerstone of their partnership and the crux of their eventual estrangement. This is a story about love, kinship and capitalism in the pursuit of the American dream.
The series is executive produced by 50 Cent via G-Unit Film and Television and showrunner and writer Randy Huggins. Heather Zuhlke also executive produces with Anthony Wilson and Anne Clements. Lionsgate Television produces for STARZ.
