Jackson will portray Herbert Wexley, a successful Manhattan hedge fund banker and husband to documentarian and mother of three Lisa Todd Wexley (Nicole Ari Parker). LeRoy’s character Andre Rashad Wallace is a successful musician and husband to Dr. Nya Wallace (Karen Pittman), a Columbia law professor.
