It’s called I’m A Virgo.
Jharrel Jerome is playing the lead.
I’m doing this w Michael Ellenberg’s Media Res. We haven’t decided on the network/streamer.

Riley is developing the series with Michael Ellenberg’s Media Res, with no network or streamer attached at the minute, but considering the critical acclaim of his directorial feature debut, and having Primetime Emmy winner Jharrel Jerome as the lead, I would expect the bidding war to be hot on this project.
