Girlfriends star Jill Marie Jones is joining Showtime’s The Chi in a guest star role on Aug. 25.
The series revealed Jones’ character in an exclusive clip via The Wrap, which shows Jones’ character Bianca cuddled up on a bar couch next to Douda (Curtiss Cook). While sitting next to each other, Bianca and Douda go over the pros and cons of the best person to take over his gang.
After Douda realizes that his available options aren’t “ruthless enough,” Bianca says, “They can’t all be cold-blooded like you.”
“But that’s the job,” Douda replies before kissing her.
Created and executive produced by Lena Waithe via her production company Hillman Grad and executive produced by Common, Season 6 of The Chi brings viewers back to Chicago’s south side as the characters continue to grow and experience change in their beloved community.
