When social connector Larry Sims invites six of his friends from different phases in his life on a luxury vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, no one knows what to expect, especially since most of his friends know next-to-nothing about the other guests. While Larry is the common thread who ties them together, they each have very different personalities and relationships with their BFF. As Larry's worlds collide, fireworks erupt and he realizes there was a valid reason he hadn't mixed them up before. With betrayal and jealousy lurking at every confrontation, keeping the peace among friends he previously kept apart will be no easy task. With cameras rolling 24/7, secrets can't be hidden and nothing stays private as old wounds resurface, new relationships form, and friendships are permanently altered.
Meet the Cast:
Born and raised on the west side of Chicago, Larry started his career as a dancer and choreographer before making the change to celebrity hairstylist and brand ambassador. He's always on the move and has built up a successful client roster with Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah and Tracee Ellis Ross, among others. With an outgoing personality, Larry is the guy everyone wants to be around, but is impossible to nail down. He hasn't taken a vacation in over five years and hopes by putting his eclectic group of friends under one roof, that he can successfully blend different parts of his life together.
Kamani is a professional makeup artist who met Larry 10 years ago when they were dancers for Missy Elliot. She is chic, grounded and claims to be Larry's personal self-help book. Single and ready to mingle, Kamani often has her guard up but is looking for a man who can handle her bourgeois attitude and sharp tongue. As a divorced mother of two, Kamani is excited to take advantage of an adult only vacation and hopes that everyone can keep it classy.
Recently divorced, Bianca is a single mother and CEO of her family's business. She has been best friends with Larry for over six years and there is no denying the chemistry between them. They are each other's "babes" and she calls herself his "cookie," but she is quick to get jealous when he diverts his attention elsewhere. While they have never crossed the line into a full-on relationship, Cabo may be the perfect place to figure out where that line should be drawn.
Jermane is Larry's ride or die friend. They grew up together in Chicago and have been leaning on each other ever since. Super opinionated and full of quick wit, Jermane doesn't hold back telling Larry what he thinks of his friends and when people are taking advantage of him. He's Larry's rock and is also super protective of anyone trying to swoop in and win his heart.
For this tall Australian blonde, the party starts when she arrives. Emily knows that she is an acquired taste and that people are either going to love or hate her, but they definitely won't forget her. She is Larry's crazy unpredictable friend who always takes things to the next level after a few drinks. Leaving her new serious boyfriend back home, Emily struggles to be faithful when tempted by the eye candy in the house.
Tall, dark and handsome, Agu is an incorrigible flirt and can't say no when a woman throws herself his way. Back home, he is Larry's wingman and is always up for a night on the town. Although he is eager to settle down and start a family, he constantly finds himself stuck in his old player ways. A model and personal trainer, Agu loves to show off his assets and can often be found sans clothing.
Malaku met Larry 15 years ago when they were dancers and tried to form a boy band, which never got off the ground. He has a cool demeanor and is the peacemaker in Larry's life. Always looking to find the good in people, Malaku quickly becomes the voice of reason within Larry's disjointed inner circle.
"Invite Only Cabo" is produced by 495 Productions with SallyAnn Salsano and Paul Storck serving as Executive Producers.
