Bounce TV will launch original series In The Cut, a half-hour situation comedy created by Bentley Kyle Evans (Family Time, The Jamie Foxx Show, Martin), in a special six-week summer series.

In The Cut stars Dorien Wilson (The Parkers, Dream On), Ken Lawson (The Parkers), Jackee Harry (Sister, Sister) and John Marshall Jones (The Smart Guy) along with special guest stars Vanessa Bell Calloway (Shameless), Golden Brooks (Girlfriends) and Chastity Dotson (Single Ladies).

The show centres on Jay Weaver (Wilson) who owns several businesses in a strip mall in San Diego and spends most of his time working in his barbershop, Jay's Chop Shop. Jay also co-owns a beauty salon a few doors away - Nadine's Shop - named for his ex-wife (Harry) who still runs it. One day, a young man named Kenny Clark (Lawson) shows up out of nowhere claiming to be Jay's 31-year-old illegitimate son from a short-lived fling. Kenny sticks around and begins to take on a role in the family business as he and Jay start to bond. Jay's long-time sidekick Clevon 'Smitty' Smith (Jones) also works at the barber shop and adds to the comedy - as well as the occasional drama - that comes into their lives.

Bounce TV is carried on the broadcast signals of local television stations and corresponding cable carriage.
