OWN has released the first trailer for upcoming soap Ambitions and in it, we see the lengths those in power will go to retain their position.
From Jamey Giddens (The Rich & the Ruthless), with Kevin Arkadie (New York Undercover) acting as showrunner and Will Packer (Girls Trip) producing, Ambitions follows the rivalry between Stephanie Lancaster (Robin Givens), a sophisticated lawyer who yearns to control her family’s firm, and Amara Hughes (Essence Atkins), a diligent and highly heralded prosecutor with the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The two are former college best friends whose animosity gets stoked when Amara moves to Atlanta with her husband.
In addition to Givens and Atkins, Ambitions stars Brian White (Ray Donovan) as Evan Lancaster, Stephanie’s husband and the wildly ambitious Mayor of Atlanta whose eyes are on the Governor’s mansion; Kendrick Cross (Death Sentence) as Amara’s husband Titus, the in-house counsel for a big pharma company; Brely Evans (Being Mary Jane) as Rondell Lancaster, Evan’s sister who manages a restaurant when she’s not running a new anti-gentrification campaign; and Erica Page (Office Christmas Party) as trendy fashion designer Bella Trujillo, who wants more for herself than dressing the likes of Stephanie.
Ambitions is set to premiere Tuesday, June 18th at 10:00 on OWN.
