Jussie Smollet and Issa Rae team up to executive produce a new web series entitled, “Giants”. While we wait patiently by our TV for the next seasons of “Insecure” and “Empire” we have something to keep us calm. The show will be released through Rae’s production company and tells the story of three black millennials who are pushing 30 and going through life pains together.
From mental to sexuality to police brutality and more, everything will be explored. The show is created, written, and directed by one of the main stars of the show, James Bland. If you are familiar with Rae’s web series “First” you will be delighted to recognize him on this new series. The show also stars Vanessa Baden, William Catlett, and others.
“The show explores social issues that are either ignored or stigmatized by the black community. Regardless of race, these characters’ experiences are relatable to almost anyone because they can learn the hard way that when life kicks your a**, you either lie down or fight back.” – James Bland
Giants will premiere January 25 at 8 p.m EST. Watch the trailer below:
