The cast of the series, which is described as “a story about family, loyalty, ambition, glory, lust, betrayal and the raw-nerve needs and desires that inspire people to greatness or drive them to unthinkable treachery,” is rounded out by Matt Lauria (“Friday Night Lights”), who plays Ryan Revis, a world-class athlete who had it all before going to prison after he spiraled into drug addiction; Kiele Sanchez (“The Glades”), who plays Revis’ longtime girlfriend Lisa Prince; and Jonathan Tucker, as Alvey's eldest son, who was a promising fighter who is now struggling with addiction.

The drama received a straight-to-series order for 10 episodes.
