The Game

”This show certainly is about the women behind the men of football,” says creator Mara Brock Akil of her second-season series, ”and we want to keep that theme, but we’ve found a lot of [comedy] gold with the guys, too.” What could be more guy-like than…you guessed it: ”We have a steroids arc. But our spin on it: Jason Pitts [Coby Bell] — he’s cheap. He’s on generic steroids!” Yeesh. Sounds less funny than dangerous! But wait, there’s more: ”Then [Jason’s wife] Kelly [Brittany Daniel] has the upper hand, so that’s where the comedy comes from in that.” Oh, that’s where the funny is. Plus, Hosea Chanchez’s Malik ”is going to make a very stupid comment that becomes a media firestorm. Kinda like what Michael Vick is going through right now.” The Game‘s new motto? No catfights, just dogfights!
