‘The Chi’ Series Premiere
Showtime has given us an early Christmas present by releasing the premiere of their new drama series, “The Chi,” from Lena Waithe and Common.
The hour-long drama is a powerful coming-of-age drama series about an interconnected group of working-class African-Americans on Chicago’s volatile south side, who remind us that no matter what, the human spirit is strong and hope never dies.
“The Chi” explores the humanity behind the headlines sensationalizing the South Side of Chicago.
The ensemble cast includes Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton), Jacob Latimore (Sleight), Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine (Queen of Katwe), Alex Hibbert (Moonlight), Yolonda Ross (Treme, The Get Down), Armando Riesco (Bull) and Tiffany Boone (The Following).
Watch “The Chi” below before it airs on Sunday, January 7th 2018 at 10Pm ET/PT on Showtime.
