McKinley Freeman has secured a lead series regular role on VH1’s  pilot Bounce where he plays Derek, the star of the team at the center of the story as well as the love interest to the show’s femme lead, newcomer Taylor Paige.  The series also stars Kimberly Elise, known for her dramatic roles in various films, as the disapproving mother of Paige’s character.
