Over a decade later, Nick Cannon is reprising his role as Devon Miles in VH1's Drumline sequel. Cannon will not only star in the TV movie but he'll also act as an executive producer. Drumline: A New Beat will have a new group of characters and will take place at a fictional New Orleans university.
The story follows Danielle (Dani) Bolton, an upper-class Brooklyn girl who defies her parents in order to attend a college in Louisiana so she can join -- and revitalize -- their once-prominent drumline. Dani's quest to become the first female section leader of the drumline in the school's history will be hampered by upperclassmen (including her cousin, Tyree); her feelings for fellow band mate and rival, Jayven; and the school's crosstown rivals. The sequel is expected to premiere in the fall of 2014.
