Robin Givens and Essence Atkins will be sharing the screen together in 2019. Both of these amazing actress have been cast in the new soapy drama "Ambitions" from mega producer Will Packer.

(Via Deadline):

"Givens plays Stephanie Carlisle, the wife of Atlanta Mayor Evan Lancaster (Brian White), whose true loyalty is to her own family’s prestigious law firm, where she is the latest in a long line of distinguished lawyers. Stephanie desperately wants to be in charge of the Carlisle family law firm and quietly fumes about her father Stephen’s condescending assertion that she’s simply not ready yet."

"Atkins will play Amara, a lawyer in the U.S. Attorney's Office who has newly arrived in Atlanta with her husband, Titus (Cross). Originally from Texas, she is quickly gaining attention as a diligent prosecutor but disappoints her supervisor by turning down the offer to run point on a major local case."

The show will air on the OWN network in 2019.
