'The Rich and the Ruthless' Coming Soon to Urban Movie Channel!

Victoria Rowell's long-awaited series, The Rich and the Ruthless, will premiere later this month on Urban Movie Channel. Written with Daytime Confidential's Jamey Giddens, R&R is a character driven story centered on two kindred spirits— soap ingĂ©nue Calysta Jeffries (Aleesha Renee) and legendary producer Augustus Barringer (Richard Brooks). The moment he auditioned her years earlier for the role of Ruby Stargazer, Augustus knew he had found his latest muse in the raw and talented Calysta.

While the driving arc is the complicated bond between Calysta and Augustus, R&R is "a multigenerational, dramedy ensemble piece. The audience will grow to love, hate and, in some cases, love to hate many among the motley crew of vicious soap divas, chiseled hunks, and treacherous network television executives who make up this world."

The cast includes Victoria Rowell as Kitty Barringer, Mykel Shannon Jenkins as Derrick Taylor, Chrysale Wilson as Alison Fairchild Roberts, Robert Ri'chard as Max Barringer, Michael Colyar as Willie Turner, Elizabeth Carlisle as Emmy Abernathy, Valenzia Algarin as Veronica Barringer, Hunter Bodine as Randall Roberts, Brenda Epperson as Edith Norman and Shadoe Stevens as Phillip McQueen. Kimberlin Brown also appears as Dr. Maya Cooper, while Dawnn Lewis plays a bitter costume designed named Beth.

Check out the fun series trailer below, along with a sneak peek from the first episode.
