Issa Rae and Jussie Smollett Are Teaming Up To Produce A New Web Series
It’ll probably be a while before the world’s thrown back into debates over relationships with another season of Insecure. But Issa Rae, who starred in and created the series, won’t leave fans without any entertainment.
Issa Rae and Jussie Smolett (Empire) will serve as executive producers for a new web series entitled Giants.
According to the description, the series was created by James Bland – who also stars and created the series – and will premiere on Jan. 25. It also stars Vanessa Baden-Kelly (Kenan & Kel and Gullah, Gullah Island).
“Giants explores social issues that are either ignored or stigmatized by the black community,” Bland 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.”
