Latasha is described as a survivor with no self-pity who is determined to wrench all the joy out of life that she can. She’s a sexy, fun woman who knows how to keep a husband — and keep him in line.

Also, DeVitto will play Maggie Hall, an ex-Army Airborne-turned-truck driver. She’s sexy and smart with an edge and has a blue-collar upbringing in Saginaw, Mich., Who then leaves her deadbeat husband and taking her son Tanner, 10, with her then joins the Army to start over.

And McLemore, who starred on Broadway’s Bring It On will play Holly Gordon, a wide-eyed farm girl, who’s newly married to a soldier and homesick, having never been more than 100 miles from home. She’s a pretty girl who doesn’t know it who’s further described as sweet, honest and in need of friends in order to make it through her husband’s deployment.
However, the show was renewed in September and will return with star Kim Delaney exiting the drama and co-star Sally Pressman recurring as the series will confront the aftermath of the deadly plane crash featured in its sixth-season finale.
