Omarion is set to star in “Involved,” an AllBlk scripted dramedy series loosely based on his life.
The former B2K singer, whose real name is Omari Ishmael Grandberry, co-created the series and will also serve as executive producer.
In “Involved,” Omarion stars as OB Sharp, who has been a boyband superstar since childhood.
Now on the verge of a worldwide tour, he secretly wants to leave the group to be a more present dad and have a better co-parenting relationship with his child’s mother, who lives in his guesthouse with her new boyfriend.
The only person who has always understood him and his lifestyle is his best friend, Maya, who is openly Bi.
They’ve always had an intimate connection without being physical; however, all that changes when they meet Edy, an eclectic flower shop owner with a free spirit and fluid lifestyle.
Suddenly, OB’s love life gets an extreme makeover, and together, they discover their new normal as a throuple.
Faced with a multitude of changes in a short timeframe, OB Sharp is adjusting to new norms within himself, relationship and family dynamics, and new business ventures.
AllBlk is holding a national casting call for “Involved” to cast the role of 31-year-old Shayla Williams (OB’s baby’s mama).
OB slid into Shayla’s DM after seeing her at Usher’s birthday party in Atlanta.
They hooked up, the chemistry was crazy, and two years later, Cammy was born.
Now, years later, the relationship is a wrap and, for Cammy’s sake, Shayla lives in OB’s guest house.
The problem is, she’s still a little bitter and she knows how to push O’s buttons.
The latest was to move her struggling rapper boyfriend in without OB knowing.
This series has A LOT going on!
The casting call will take place between June 14-18 in Miami Beach during the 27th Annual American Black Film Festival.
