From creator Stephen Levinson, Ballers takes a look at the lives of former and current football players, including former superstar Spencer Strasmore (Johnson), who is trying to reinvent himself as a financial manager for current players in sunsoaked Miami.

The cast also includes John David Washington, Omar Miller, Donovan W. Carter, Troy Garity, London Brown, Jazmyn Simon and Rob Corddry.

In the series, Acosta portrays the faithful girlfriend of the hotheaded and troubled—yet talented—wide receiver Ricky Jerret (Washington).

“My character’s man cheats on her. Lies to her a lot. She stays with him, but not in a weak way. She sees the good in him, but stands up for herself,” Acosta tells The New York Daily News.

Ballers debuted its 10-episode season Sunday, June 21 on HBO and currently debuts other episodes Sundays at 10 PM.

Levinson and Johnson also executive produce the series.
