I have a show about a 13-ft tall Black man who lives in Oakland. 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 figured out the network/streamer. It’ll be dark, absurd, hilarious, and important. (This amazing artwork is by @folklaurel)
The producer, writer, rapper, and director is best known for leading The Coup – a punk/hip-hop band. This group produced six albums. I’m A Virgo will be Riley’s first project in television.
