'When They See Us' Star Jharrel Jerome To Lead 'I'm A Virgo' Series Headed to Amazon

Jharrel Jerome is set to lead Amazon Studios’ new series, I’m A Virgo, according to Deadline.

The series will be a half hour show from the mind of Sorry to Bother You writer-director Boots Riley and a co-production between The Morning Show producer Media Res and Amazon Studios.

I’m A Virgo is described as an “absurdist, coming-of-age joyride about a 13-foot-tall Black man who lives in Oakland, CA.”

Jharrel will also be an executive producer on the project.

Since starring in Netflix’s When They See Us, Jharrel has picked up many accolades, including a Critics’ Choice Award and even the Best Actor award at the 2019 Emmy Awards.

Jharrel recently opened up about his role in the Netflix movie and why it was important to tell the story that many people haven’t heard.
