Yes you heard right! Empire star Jussie Smollett and Insecure creator Issa Rae are joining forces to release a new web series entitled Giants. Directed by James Bland, who directed Rae’s web series First, Giants focuses on the lives of 30-something year olds as they manage tough issues such as homophobia, depression, and police brutality related trauma.
The series stars Bland, Sean Samuels, and a familiar face Vanessa Baden Kelly. You may remember Kelly from her roles in Gullah Gullah Island and Keenan and Kel. She returns to the screen this time, bringing her own struggles with manic depression to the fore front with her character Journee.
Giants will be released January 25, with a six episode season! Watch the trailer above and we’re sure you won’t be able to wait to tune in!
