Bounce has unveiled its upcoming original programming schedule, and it includes an all-new original series written, produced, directed by and starring Black women.
"Finding Happy" is a dramedy spotlighting the Black female experience through the unfulfilled life of Yaz Carter, beginning with her unhappy 36th birthday. The 10-episode season features Yaz's loving-but-complicated family, her stagnant career in radio, and a merry-go-round of unrequited love in Atlanta.
B. Simone stars as Yaz along with Kim Coles, Marketta Patrice, Angela Gibbs, Stevie Baggs and Mike Merrill.
"Finding Happy" is a companion show to Bounce's returning male-centric hit, "Johnson." Terri J. Vaughn joins the cast for season 2 along with LaRay, Thomas Q. Jones, D.L. Hughley, Derrex Brady and Philip A. Smithey.
Also coming to Bounce is the movie "Faith Heist 2," a sequel to last year's comedy hit.
Other Bounce original programming includes the Scripps National Spelling Bee, airing June 1-2, and the Bounce Trumpet Awards, returning for a special 30th anniversary telecast on Juneteenth.
Bounce, designed for African American audiences, is available in Houston on Xfinity channel 310 or over the air on Quest, KHOU's digital sub-channel at 11.4. It's also on DISH channel 359 plus the streaming channels for Roku, Pluto TV, Xumo and Apple TV. It can also be found on mobile devices via the Bounce app and online at BounceTV.com.
