Insecure creator and star Issa Rae returns to her roots with the premiere of a new web series. Rae has teamed up with Empire star Jussie Smollett to produce Giants, an upcoming digital production about three black millennials who struggle with adulthood as they approach the age of 30. Giants is written, directed, and created by James Bland.
“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.”
Giants premieres on YouTube on January 25th at 8 p.m. EST. Watch a trailer for the series below.
