Tia Mowry Joins Rosewood Cast
Actress Tia Mowry is joining the cast of Rosewood. The former Instant Mom star has been tapped for a multi-episodic arc set to begin when the show returns after its mid-season finale on March 2, 2016.
Tia is set to play the role of Cassie, a childhood friend of Pippy’s (Gabrielle Dennis). She reportedly owns her own successful business, despite being homeless as a teen after her parents discovered she was a lesbian and kicked her out.
Actors Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall are set to reprise their roles of Derwin Davis and Dr. Melanie Barnett-Davis in the series finale of The Game.
The big announcement was made at last night’s BET Awards, where the show’s cast gathered to bid farewell to fans. Pooch Hall surprised the cast, joining them on stage, saying “It’s not gonna be a final season without your boy. It’s not just me. Melanie is also back on The Game for the finale.”
According to Tia Mowry, The Game’s return to network television is one step closer to being reality. The 32 year old actress went on Twitter last night to let fans know she had finally received word of when taping of new episodes would begin. It had been previously speculated that new episodes would be shot in September, with the show airing its first episodes in January 2011. Tia’s tweet pretty much confirms the taping schedule and with any luck, the show will back on television by the beginning of next year.
The Game has been off air going on two years now; if they delay airing new episodes any longer they risk the chance of losing the loyal audience that helped rally to get them back online.
