In the clip, Dr. Fletcher (played by Anika Noni Rose) is the newly hired president of Georgia A&M (GAMU) and is beginning to see the power struggles she must overcome to get the university back to the top of its ranks. She has to prove herself and in the clip, she’s not taking anyone’s shade, including the band director’s.
THE QUAD follows the ambitious yet secretive life of EVA, the newly elected President of Georgia A&M (an HBCU), her administration, and the entering freshman class. Our freshman are led by ZOE, Eva’s rebellious daughter, CEDRIC, a talented rapper on the come up, and BOJOHN, who is looking to achieve victory and success as the school’s first white starting quarterback.
The staple of Georgia A&M is their prestigious marching band led by their charismatic yet ruthless leader, ART DIAMOND. Art’s power and influence proves a challenge to Eva but she manages to find strong allies in ELLA GRACE, Dean of the history department, and football coach, EUGENE HARDWICK.
Though the students and faculty of THE QUAD come from different places and face different challenges, one similarity remains—everyone is looking to make a name for themselves at Georgia A&M.
The Quad premieres Jan 31 at 10pm ET on BET.
