Tami Roman to Star as Octavia Spencer’s Step-Mother in Upcoming Series

Tami Roman wasn’t lying when she told her Basketball Wives co-stars she’s a “booked and busy,” woman, as the actress is set to star opposite Oscar-winner Octavia Butler in upcoming series, Are You Sleeping.

Roman is set to feature as Butler’s “saucy” step-mother in the Apple TV original drama, according to Deadline. She also recently starred in TVOne original movie When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story opposite Lil Mama and Lance Gross.

Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine production company is behind the scripted drama venture, as well as Peter Chernin of Chernin Entertainment and Endeavor Content. The series will also feature cast regulars Lizzy Caplan, Mekhi Phifer, Michael Beach, Tracie Thoms, Haneefah Wood and Ron Cephas Jones.
