Girls Trip star Regina Hall  been cast opposite Don Cheadle in Showtime’s half-hour Wall Street comedy pilot Ball Street.

Ball Street takes us back to October 19, 1987 – aka Black Monday – one of the worst stock market crashes in the history of Wall Street. To this day, no one knows who or what caused it. Ball Street is the story of how a bunch of fearless underdogs took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street. Among the intrepid traders who make up the group led by Cheadle’s character are Dawn (Hall), the no-nonsense head of trading and the only woman on the team, along with Keith (Paul Scheer) and Ronnie (Eugene Cordero).  Kurt Braunohler appears as Ty Daverman, a vice president at Morgan Stanley.

Production is scheduled to begin next week in Los Angeles. Ball Street is co-produced by Showtime and Sony Pictures TV Studios.

Hall most recently starred as a lead in the comedy hit Girls Trip, which is the highest-grossing comedy of 2017 with over $115 million in the U.S.  Her additional recent credits include The Best Man and Think Like a Man.
