New York, NY (January 6, 2022) – Terror Lake Drive, ALLBLK’s popular thriller following the terrorized tenants of the fictional Freeman Lake Apartments, has named the lead cast for its second season, entitled “Single Black Female.” Tony Award-nominated actress Pascale Armand (Eclipsed), Yolanda Ross (The Chi), Charles Malik Whitfield (Chicago Med), Denise Boutte (Meet the Browns), and Kendrick Cross (Ambitions) will star in the newest installment of the anthology series created by Jerry LaMothe (Blackout) and Kajuana S. Marie. The second season brings a new, unsuspecting tenant to the mystifying lakeside apartment complex that terrorized a mother and her young son in Season 1. Following a single mother from Baltimore who relocates to Atlanta in an attempt to escape her troubled past, the inaugural season starred Shannon Kane (The Originals), Malik Yoba (First Wives Club), Donielle T. Hansley Jr. (Charm City Kings), and Lamman Rucker (Greenleaf).
Terror Lake Drive: Single Black Female takes place two years after the chain of events that haunted the Freeman Lake Apartments in the first season. Deja (Armand), a traveling nurse who has recently completed an assignment in Austin, Texas announces her new assignment at the recently constructed Atlanta University Hospital – much to the dismay of her friends and colleagues. Amid her housing quest, she meets an awkwardly shy and eclectic Doula named Shana (Ross), who happens to be a nursing student at the university and is seeking a roommate – single Black female preferred. Oblivious to its checkered past, Deja makes herself at home with Shana at Freeman Lake…unknowingly becoming a target of the latest eerie coincidence to inhabit the troubled community.
Whitfield stars as Mayor Brown, an Atlanta native tasked with getting his city back on track amidst a string of missing Black women and a crime rate at an all-time high. Boutte plays the role of Deputy Mayor Kenya Sanderson, a single mother of two and rising star within the political circuit who plots to become Mayor Brown’s replacement.
Cross plays the role of Dr. Eric Matthews, a director and lead Neuroscientist at Austin Medical’s Behavioral Health Department. A brilliant and passionate physician who takes a liking to Deja, he is determined to pursue a relationship with her despite her impending relocation.
Terror Lake Drive: Single Black Female is directed by LaMothe, who also serves as executive producer alongside Marie, and Jumaane Ford under LaMothe’s J. LaMothe Entertainment banner. Errol Sadler, Chris Bongirne and Samad Davis serve as producers on the series. The 7-episode second season is currently slated to premiere in June 2022.
