MGM+ SERIES "EMPEROR OF OCEAN PARK" REVEALS TRAILER AND PREMIERE DATE, ANNOUNCES MORE CAST

NAACP Image Award Winner Keith Powers among newly added cast with Kelli Simpkins, Keith Kupferer, and Deanna Reed-Foster

LOS ANGELES - May 22, 2024 - Today, premium linear channel and streaming service MGM+ revealed a first-look trailer at the highly anticipated series Emperor of Ocean Park from John Wells and Sherman Payne. Executive produced by Sherman Payne, the series is set to premiere with its first episode on July 14 on MGM+, with new episodes airing on Sundays until September 15. In addition to previously announced stars (Forest Whitaker, Grantham Coleman, Tiffany Mack, Paulina Lule, and more), the first season has also added NAACP Image Award Winner Keith Powers (The Perfect Find, The Tomorrow War, The Uglies), Kelli Simpkins (American Rust, Work in Progress, 61st Street), Keith Kupferer (Ghostlight, Windows, The Dark Knight), and Deanna Reed-Foster (The Shining Girls, Vince Staples Show, Chicago Fire).

Emperor of Ocean Park is set in the worlds of politics, elite academia, and the beaches of Martha's Vineyard. It follows Talcott Garland (Grantham Coleman), an esteemed law professor whose quiet life is shattered when his father, Judge Oliver Garland, dies of an apparent heart attack. The nature of the judge's death is questioned by Tal's sister, Mariah, a former journalist and inveterate conspiracy theorist, who believes that the judge, a failed Black nominee to the Supreme Court, met with foul play.

The new cast announced today are Keith Powers, Kelli Simpkins, Keith Kupferer, and Deanna Reed-Foster.

Guest Stars:

· Kelli Simpkins as "Dana Worth"

· Simpkins is represented by Gray Talent Group and 1022m.

· Keith Kupferer as "Mallory 'Uncle Mal' Corcoran"

· Character Description: Uncle Mal is a well-connected lawyer and power broker who garners respect from politicians and the wealthy alike. A longtime ally to Oliver Garland and his family.

· Kupferer is represented by Gray Talent Group and Fusion Entertainment.

· Deanna Reed-Foster as "Sally Garland, aka Cousin Sally"

· Character Description: Sally is a single woman who brings a party with her wherever she goes. A functioning alcoholic with a fixation on the approval of her cousins, she struggles with feelings of loneliness and depression.
