“Drumline: A New Beat” will capture the sound and spirit of the first film while welcoming a whole new class to the Atlanta A & T drumline. The new story is all about girl power; it follows Danielle “Dani” Raymond (Alexandra Shipp), an upper class Brooklyn girl who defies her parents in order to attend Atlanta A & T so she can join – and revitalize – their once-prominent drumline. Dani’s quest to become the first female section leader will be hampered by upperclassmen, including her cousin Tyree (Jeff Pierre), her feelings for fellow bandmate and rival Jayven (Jordan Calloway), and the school’s crosstown competitors.  Tasha (Jasmine Burke) and Josh (Scott Shilstone) round out the freshmen drumline and bring their own ambitions to the field.  Sean Taylor (Leonard Roberts) from the original Drumline will return as the new Band Director looking to make his mark on his alma mater  while navigating some ghosts from his past that include the Dean, Dr. Nia Phillips (LeToya Luckett), his brother Kevin Taylor (Deray Davis) and original Drumline favorite, Devon Miles (Nick Cannon).
