VH1 has another scripted series in the works, and this time there aren't any single ladies involved.

The network has officially greenlit "Bounce," starring Dean Cain, Kimberly Elise and Charlotte Ross.

The series will follow the Los Angeles Devil Girls, the premiere dance team in professional basketball. "Bounce" centers on Ahsha (Taylor Paige) who joins the team despite her mother Sloane's (Kimberly Elise) wishes. Dean Cain will play Pete Davenport, a former All-Star who comes back to coach his old team.

VH1's "Single Ladies," which is currently in its second seasons, has seen a great deal of success with an average of 3.1 million total viewers per episode.

"As an actor, it’s kind of a relief when you come on a show that you already know is a success," Denise Vasi, one of the stars of "Single Ladies," told HuffPost. "They have a built-in audience and the show is written in a certain way that the fans will keep coming back regardless."

Will "Bounce" have the same success as "Single Ladies"?
