Cynthia Bailey and Reginae Carter join season 2 of Jerry LaMothe and Kajuana S. Marie horror anthology season, Terror Lake Drive for AllBlk. They join previously cast Pascale Armand, Yolonda Ross, Denise Boutte, Charles Malik Whitfield, and Kendrick Cross who lead the series.
Titled Terror Lake Drive: Single Black Female, the upcoming season of the anthology will take place two years after the chain of events that haunted the Freeman Lake Apartments in the first season.
This season will focus on traveling nurse Deja (Armond), the newest tenant at the troubled (fictional) Freeman Lake Apartments, who relocated to Atlanta from Austin, Texas for a job assignment. She will room with an awkwardly shy and eclectic Doula named Shana (Ross).
Armand’s Deja starts off the season announcing 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.
Bailey will portray the character Rose, a down on her luck single mom who resides in the ominous Freeman Lake Apartments. A product of the foster care system, Rose, a strong and resilient woman, fights to keep her son on the straight and narrow.
Carter is cast as Keisha, a fiery activist and key member of the BFM (Black Face Movement) and best friend to BFM’s Queen and subsequent leader Nefertiti (Jennifer Sears), who along with the group’s other members, reside in Freeman Lakes. When the organization is hit with an unexpected tragedy, Keisha displays the ultimate loyalty as the movement faces an uphill battle amidst strong opposition.
Whitfield will star 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 takes on 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 inaugural installment followed a single mother from Baltimore who relocates to Atlanta in an attempt to escape her troubled past and starred Shannon Kane, Malik Yoba, Donielle T. Hansley Jr., and Lamman Rucker.
The 7-episode second season is slated to premiere in June 2022.
