Will Packer has added more star power to his upcoming OWN drama Ambitions.

One of my favorite veteran actors Steven Williams will now have a recurring role on the series as ‘Stephen Carlisle,’ a powerful attorney and Stephanie’s (Robin Givens) father. You may remember him from the iconic 80s TV series 21 Jump Street. He also appears on Lena Waithe‘s groundbreaking Showtime series The Chi.

Also appearing on the show is Christina Kirkman. She will be starring as ‘Lori,’ a smart, challenging, force to be reckoned with, who works as PR exec at Purifoy Pharmaceuticals, owned by her father, Hunter Purifoy.

As previously mentionedAmbitions is a multigenerational family saga centered around one woman who, having recently relocated and intent on revitalizing her marriage, finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city.

Ambitions stars Robin Givens, Essence Atkins, Brian White, Kendrick Cross, Brely Evans and Erica Page.

Production is currently underway in Atlanta and will debut on OWN in 2019. It is produced for OWN by Will Packer Media in association with Lionsgate and its producer-distributor Debmar-Mercury.
