Hit The Floor Creator James LaRosa Shares Behind The Scenes Photos From Episode 5

"We run a classy ship at Hit The Floor."

Hit The Floor showrunner James LaRosa is one of the most dedicated men in TV and each week, he’s been providing us with plenty of behind the scenes photos and backstage gossip from the set of the show. This week, we’re pretty sure he became an honorary member of The Wayans family (we always knew he was fly, girl), and he reveals that Brent Antonello and Adam Senn are actually pretty filthy guys, even though they clean up nice.

  • 1 Miguel!
    “Here’s me and Jaiden Manjarrez, who plays ’Little Mexican Precious Moments doll’ Miguel (or Man-Whale as Kyle calls him). We’re sporting matching shiners. Little boys love fake bruises. If you don’t believe me, check me out at dinner after we wrapped, where I insisting on still keeping it on my face. But that actually has more to do with my desperate need for codding and sympathy. HOLD ME.”

  • 2 Hugs! Tiny, tiny hugs.
    “I heart Logan Browning. Don’t tell her or she’ll get too big for her britches, and I don’t think the world can take her any taller than the 3’4″ she already is.”

  • 3 James and Bille Woodruff
    “Did you like this week’s episode? Thank Bille Woodruff, who was directing his first episode for us. He’s incredible, incredibly funny and can shoot dance like no one’s business. As proof: next week’s episode, which has my personal pick for the sexiest dance we’ve ever done. That’s right, sexiest. ever. I said it.”

  • 4 Zude. In. Bed.
    “I love this picture. Not because it represents the first true moment of Zude as an actualized couple, but because it represents something else: how dirty our floors are. The bottoms of Adam Senn and Brent Antonello’s feet were so filthy that we had to clean them before we could roll. That’s our amazing head of Make-Up, Tym Buacharern, wishing he was back on tour with Janet Jackson. Meanwhile Adam is so over it.”

  • 5 Two Kims, A James and a Pizza Place
    “For the roll of Karen the corrupt cop, I wanted someone you’d never suspect. Kim Wayans is beloved from In Living Color and never played a villain before in her life. Welcome to HTF baby. Kim inducted me into the Wayans family that day. For the record, I’m also an honorary Baldwin (thanks Billy!). Next stop, either the Barrymores or the Jonases.”

  • 6 James Dances With The Devils
    “Look at the pure glee in their faces. The rapture. God they’re monsters.”

    “Let’s see Shonda Rhimes wear this bikini t-shirt with her cast. Bring it Shonda! Okay she’d probably rock it. Meanwhile yes that is Meagan Kong grabbing my boob. We run a classy ship at Hit The Floor.”

  • 8 Jodi Lyn O’Cleave
    “Can we talk about this dress? We had to give Jodi Lyn O’Keefe’s cleavage guest star billing this episode. #earnedit”
