Tami Roman is once again throwing her hat into the acting ring. The Basketball Wives star is shopping around a pilot titled The Assist, which she shot with singer Brooke Valentine, basketball player Nick Young, and fellow reality star Paris Phillips.
The half-hour comedy finds Tami playing a publicist who works for an NBA superstar, a role she says she’s more than prepared for given her seven year marriage to former NBA player Kenny Anderson. “This was an amazing character for me to play,” Tami told fans via Facebook. “She’s fully in control, not the girlfriend, not the ex-girlfriend, not the baby mama; I’m kind of the boss over the boss on the show.”
Tami went on to liken The Assist to Martin, saying “The show gives you a very old school nineties vibe. We haven’t really had a good sitcom since the Martin show and this is something similar that people can enjoy and relate to.
Tami last appeared in the TV One series Belle’s (2013) and has an acting resume that includes guest appearances on Married with Children, Silk Stalkings, The Parkers, The Steve Harvey Show, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, One on One, Extant and many, many others.
The Assist hasn’t been picked up yet, but a quickie preview was recently released which you can check out below.
