Tami Roman‘s resume is growing at an impressive rate. Known for her sometimes controversial role on Basketball Wives, the When Love Kills star has made an even bigger name for herself with Bonnet Chronicles, a 60-second hot take on the day’s most hilarious headlines. The hilarious videos picked up so much steam, they are now featured on JAY-Z’s Tidal.


But Roman has perhaps landed her biggest role yet, starring opposite Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer in Apple’s new thriller, Are You Sleeping? Spencer stars “as Poppy Parnell, a relentless investigative reporter who looks to uncover the truth behind a decades-old questionable murder verdict through her new podcast. Caplan plays twin sisters Josie and Lanie, whose father’s murder decades ago is examined on the podcast.”

Deadline reports, the series is “based on the true-crime novel by Kathleen Barber” and it “provides a unique glimpse into America’s obsession with true-crime podcasts and challenges its viewers to consider the consequences when the pursuit of justice is placed on a public stage.”
