“The411” Entertainment Report by Sherlene Shanklin, WHAS11 Television, ABC Affiliate in Louisville, KY
I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with actor Kendrick Cross not once but twice in the past year talking about his career but tonight all eyes will be on the Louisville native as the Will Packer drama series Ambitions debuts tonight on the OWN Network.
Kendrick made a special visit to Louisville a few weeks ago to surprise his mother for Mother’s Day. He sat down with me and told me a little about the show. I’ve also been in contact with the actor this evening and you can tell he’s excited about fans getting an opportunity to see the show. He told me to make sure I was watching. I hope you tune in to watch as well and tell me what you think.
Here’s a link about Cross’ character and just a few hints of what you can expect when you watch the series co-starring Robin Givens, Essence Atkins and Brian White.
Also, did you know that Givens has a connection to Kentucky as well? Her parents are from the Lexington area and her uncle is the former University of Kentucky basketball legend Jack “Goose” Givens.
