Roughness centers on a female shrink (Thorne) who becomes the therapist for a professional football team. After succeeding beyond expectations, she is sought after by other athletes, musicians, politicians, and those living in the spotlight who all want her unique brand of tough-love therapy.
Blucas will play the team’s hunky trainer and a romantic foil for Thorne.
