Basketball Wives star Tami Roman has landed an exciting new project in Apples’s upcoming Octavia Spencer-lead thriller series, Are You Sleeping?

The series is based on the true-crime novel of the same name by Kathleen Barber, which focuses on the country’s obsession with true-crime podcasts and looks at what happens when “the pursuit of justice is placed on a public stage.”

Roman will play the “saucy stepmother” of Spencer’s Poppy Parnell, an investigative reporter who, through her podcast, starts investigating for the truth behind a decades old murder verdict, and will appear alongside Ron Cephas Jones, Mekhi Phifer, Haneefah Wood, Spencer, and Tracie Thoms.

While primarily known from her appearance in The Real World and Basketball Wives television series, Roman has long been an actress with several television acting roles to her name. Her first major recurring role was on CBS’ Moonlight from 2007-2008. Later, she was a lead in the TV One sitcom, Belle’s and had a recurring role in the Halle Berry CBS sci-fi drama, Extant. Roma recently starred in the TV One movie, When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story. She’s also set to appear in the upcoming films Prison Logic and The Family Business.
