I’m A Virgo: Comedy Series From Boots Riley Starring Jharrel Jerome Lands At Amazon


The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that I’m A Virgo, a coming-of-age comedy series project that director Boots Riley teased back in the summer starring Jharrel Jerome, has been given a series order at Amazon.

 

I’m A Virgo will focus on the coming-of-age joyride about a thirteen-foot-tall black man who lives in Oakland, California.

 

Creator, writer and director Boots Riley released a statement saying:

I’m thrilled to be working with Amazon on this project. This show will either have me lauded or banned, and as such, I have demanded payment up front.

 

Amazon Studios will be co-producing the series with Media Res, with Boots Riley executive producing alongside Jharrel Jerome, Media Res’s Michael Ellbenberg and Tze Chun.
