Netflix has placed a series order for a scripted comedy series starring rapper and occasional actor Vince Staples.
Kenya Barris, the project's dark-haired creator, has served as an EP. Other EPs include Staples himself, Maurice Williams, Corey Smyth, and Calmatic. Edelman and Williams are co-showrunners.
The Vince Staples Show will be presented on Netflix and Kenya Barris, according to Staples in a statement. This has been something I've been working on for some time and I'm delighted it's coming to fruition.
Tracey Pakosta, Netflix's head of comedy: It's our goal to collaborate with the finest musicians in the world. Vince has already established himself as one of the most accomplished young musicians today, and we're both impressed by his unique humor.
Autre acting credits include playing the title character in Adult Swims Lazor Wulf and himself in an episode of Insecure.
