Peacock’s limited series Fight Night will be one star-studded affair, and six more cast members have just been added to its ensemble. Chloe Bailey and Lori Harvey are among the latest recruits joining Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Hart in this highly-anticipated series.

Chloe Bailey (Candy Cane Lane), Melvin Gregg (Snowfall), Artrece Johnson (A Thousand One), Jalyn Hall (Genius: MLK/X), Clifton Powell (Black Lightning), and model and social media personality Lori Harvey are the latest stars to join Fight Night: The Million Dollar Heist, based on the podcast of the same name.

This series will be set in the aftermath of Muhammad Ali’s infamous defeat of Jerry Quarry, which served as the scene of one of Atlanta’s most notorious crimes. Hundreds of guests were robbed at gunpoint at the after-party, and this series will focus on the cop and the hustler at the center of it all.

In addition to the recently added six cast members, Fight Night will also star Samuel L. Jackson, Kevin Hart, Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Don Cheadle, Myles Bullock, plus up-and-comer Dexter Darden as Muhammad Ali. It hails from creator and writer Shaye Ogbonna, who’s also coming on board as co-showrunner and executive producer alongside Jason Horwitch.
