Starz announced today that Russell Hornsby (Fences, The Hate U Give) and Steve Harris (“The Practice,” Diary of a Mad Black Woman) have been cast as series regulars in the STARZ Original series “Black Mafia Family,” from executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (“Power,” “Power Book II: Ghost,” “For Life”), and writer, executive producer and Detroit native Randy Huggins (“Star,” “Rebel,” “Power”). Entertainer Arkeisha “Kash Doll” Knight, a Detroit native as well, has also joined the cast in a recurring role. “Black Mafia Family” is produced through Jackson’s G-Unit Film and Television in association with Starz and Lionsgate Television.
Russell Hornsby plays Charles Flenory, the principled patriarch of the Flenory family and a struggling musician who uses faith, fortitude and humor to keep his family on the straight and narrow as he tries to save Terry from the outsized ambition and influence of his older brother Demetrius.
Emmy®-Award nominee Steve Harris plays Detective Bryant, a 20-year veteran of the Detroit Police Department, who has a longstanding relationship with Demetrius Flenory. When Detective Bryant gets assigned to the Down River Area Narcotics Operation – a real life, county-wide assault team on all local drug operations – he is put in direct conflict with Demetrius. Bryant will be forced to choose between his career and his loyalty.
Arkeisha “Kash Doll” Knight plays Monique, a paralegal for the biggest defense attorney in Detroit and a strong single mom determined to give her daughter a better life. When it comes to being a parent, she's a practical provider. But away from work and home Monique is creative, adventurous, and one of Demetrius Flenory's lovers. But Meech and Monique's relationship is much more than just sex and pillow talk: Monique’s firm represents some of the biggest drug dealers in the city, which gives Meech and Terry an advantage in their rise through the streets.
