INSECURE CREATOR and star Issa Rae has teamed up with Empire’s Jussie Smollett to produce YouTube web series, Giants.
Giants will focus on “three black millennials” as they approach 30 and realise that despite their age, they don’t know how to do “adulting”.
The Golden Globe-nominated actress and Empire star Jussie Smollett serve as executive producers for Giants, which also stars the show’s creator/director James Bland.
The longstanding actor has also appeared in the popular web-series First, and other programs including The Stereotypes Show, My Brother’s Keeper: A Drama Series, and more.
“Giants explores social issues that are either ignored or stigmatized by the black community,” James said in a press release. “And regardless of race, these characters’ experiences are relatable to almost anyone because they learn the hard way that when life kicks your a**, you either lie down or fight back.”
Giants will debut on YouTube on January 25 at 8pm EST.
