Thea Vidale has joined the cast of the new series, “The Bostons.” She joins series regulars Tasha Scott, Cody Cowell, Jiggie Gee, Carena Lemons and Tre Ryan. The show revolves around the lives of three sisters who are brought together by the unexpected demise of their mother, Pamela Boston, following a heart attack.
Pamela, a former school teacher, suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after witnessing the tragic murder of her husband, Archie Boston, an architect fatally shot in a home robbery. The impact left Pamela mentally shattered, and her eldest daughter, Quanetta (Jiggie Gee), decided to place her in a mental ward, creating a rift among the sisters Artavia (Carena Lemons), and Laretha (Tasha Scott) who hadn’t communicated for years.
Quanetta, Artavia, and Laretha are now forced to confront their strained relationship as they receive the shocking news of their mother’s passing. The Bostons, produced by DJL Concept Creations LLC, explores the sisters’ dilemma, urging them to either bury their feud or perpetuate it.
DeAndre Little, the writer, creator, and executive producer of “The Bostons,” leads the production with MJ Furlio and Benjamin Sims as producers. The eight episode series will begin production in March and is set to air on the Royal K Network.
James E. Gaddy, Carol Williams, Cameron Mills, Albino Francis, Rickie Taylor, Craig Michael Black, and Tony Jones attached to guest star.
The characters in the series are intricately woven into the storyline, each dealing with their unique challenges. Quanetta Boston Ford, played by Gee, is a goal-driven, god-fearing heart surgeon facing the dual struggle of a Lupus diagnosis and the sudden death of her mother. Artavia Boston, portrayed by Lemons, is an attorney breaking free from an abusive marriage, while Laretha Boston, played by Scott, navigates real estate and health challenges, having recently been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Gerald Ford, portrayed by Tre Ryan, adds a touch of suspense as a homicide detective standing by his wife, Quanetta, and Henry King, played by Cody Cowell, introduces complexity as a controlling computer engineer married to Artavia. The series promises a rollercoaster of emotions, family dynamics, and unexpected twists, making it a must-watch for fans of gripping drama.
