Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Katlynn Simone always had a love for the arts. Her parents had her start working with a small vocal studio and later enrolled her in Houston’s prestigious Ensemble Theater, where she eventually performed in sold out productions nightly. She was then accepted in to Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts where she studied musical theater and discovered her love of acting. While in high school, her father saw an ad for a casting audition for a teen character on The Game, and immediately booked flights for whirlwind trip to Los Angeles. The family waited for months with no word from the producers until finally they received the call that Katlynn had booked the role and would be traveling to Atlanta to play ‘Brittany Pitts’ aka ‘Brit Brat’, the unruly daughter of main character, Jason Pitts and his ex-wife Kelly Pitts.
Katlynn’s music was featured on an episode from the sixth season of The Game and fans reached out on the web to find out where they could hear the song and who the artist was. The amazing reaction from viewers confirmed that the song “Beautiful Lie” needed to be heard, so Katlynn Simone, along with her management 3Sixty Music Group, immediately went to work on a music video which is out now.
The Game returns this March with the retirement of Jason’s (Coby Bell) Sabers jersey and a crisis that threatens to jeopardize the legacy of the future Hall of Famer.
In season seven, fans will watch as Jason continues to maneuver the pressures of his marriage to Chardonnay (Brandy Norwood), while figuring out how to deal with the return of his ex-wife, Kelly (Brittany Daniel). Tasha faces a personal life changing moment that leaves her reeling, while Malik struggles to overcome a potential career ending injury. And the newbies, Keira (Lauren London) and Blue (Jay Ellis), continue to make rookie mistakes on and off the field. Everything comes to a head for Sabers devotees as the end of the season builds to an unforgettable conclusion.
The season seven premiere of The Game airs on Tuesday, March 4th @ 10PM ET/PT on BET.
