‘STUCK WITH YOU’: VIVICA A. FOX JOINS SEASON 2 OF UMC’S ORIGINAL RELATIONSHIP DRAMEDY FROM PATRICIA CUFFIE-JONES
Isaac Keys (Beyond the Lights) and Reneé Lawless (“The Haves and the Have Nots”) Also Join as Recurring Characters in New Season
Following the announcement of its upcoming Thanksgiving premiere of the 6-part thriller, “Terror Lake Drive,” UMC – the popular streaming service for Black TV and film from AMC Networks – announced today a new addition to the cast of its popular romantic dramedy series, “Stuck With You.” The series which stars Tammy Townsend (“Love Is_,” “K.C. Undercover”) and Timon Kyle Durrett (“Queen Sugar,” “Single Ladies”) as Candace and Luvell – an unhappily married celebrity couple that struggles with being the face of #relationshipgoals while living separate lives behind closed doors – has added Vivica A. Fox to the new season. Fox, who most recently recurred as Candace on FOX’s “Empire,” will recur as Terry Parker, an entertainment industry mogul who along with her husband, Blu Parker (new recurring character Isaac Keys, Beyond the Lights), co-author a new hit relationship book that challenges the spotlight once held by Candace and Luvell.
Created by Patricia Cuffie-Jones, “Stuck With You” also adds actress Reneé Lawless (Tyler Perry’s “The Haves and the Have Nots”) to the cast. Lawless will play Charlotte Reed, a well-respected Hollywood vet and former manager to Luvell (Durrett) who’s determined to get him back to work and at the top of his acting game. Season 1 stars AJ Johnson (Baby Boy), Jessica Obilom (Trafficked), Terrence Green (“Step Up: High Water”), Tiffany Black (When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story), Monti Washington (Tyler Perry’s “Bruh”), former Danity Kane member D. Woods, and R&B singer, Shanice all return for the new season with production currently underway.
“In Season 1 of ‘Stuck With You,’ audiences followed along the dysfunctional rollercoaster ride that is ‘CandyLuv’ as they figured out how to move forward with their troubled marriage,” says Brett Dismuke, Chief Content Officer of UMC. “Now with the addition of ‘The Parkers’ to the storyline for Season 2, viewers are in for a whole new level of drama as these two celebrity couples battle it out for the #relationshipgoals title.”
Show creator Patricia Cuffie-Jones added “The new additions to this season will take the lives of our characters as we know them and flip them completely upside down. From first introductions to rekindling old flames, morals will be tested and temptations heightened as ‘The Parkers’ give our protagonists a run for their money. I’ve been a fan of Vivica’s forever and I’m honored to have her join our cast and bring in a new level of flavor that will have audiences in for quite the ride.”
“Stuck With You” is written, directed, and executive produced by Patricia Cuffie-Jones through her Diverge Entertainment production arm. Brenton Earley serves as co-producer with casting by Keisha Richardson for Krichcasting. Season 2 of the series is currently slated for a Spring 2021 premiere.
