Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal’s Blindspotting is getting its own spinoff series at Starz.
Deadline reports that Starz has ordered a television spinoff series based on the 2018 dramedy, Blindspotting.
Written, produced, and starring Rafael Casal and Hamilton vet Daveed Diggs, the film hit theaters in 2018 following a successful opening at Sundance Film Festival.
Set in Digg’s hometown of Oakland, the film finds Casal and Diggs playing childhood best friends who suddenly find themselves in a spot of trouble.
It’s especially a bit of a pickle for Diggs’ Collin, who’s just days away from the end of his probation and looking forward to putting the infamous arrest on his record behind him. His chance of starting over, however, winds up jeopardized after a life-changing missed curfew.
At Starz, the Blindspotting spinoff series will manifest in a half-hour dramedy written and executive produced by Diggs and Casal.
In addition, Casal will serve as showrunner on the series, where he’ll also have a recurring role.
Casal and Diggs aren’t the only ones from the film set to return.
In addition, Jasmine Cephas Jones (who also starred in Hamilton on Broadway alongside Diggs) will return to reprise her role as Ashley for the spinoff series.
The show will follow along as Ashley finds herself forced to move in with her partner/baby daddy, Miles’ family when Miles suddenly winds up incarcerated.
In a joint statement announcing the news of a Blindspotting spinoff series at Starz, Casal and Diggs said: “Let us put you up on game, bruh. No description will encompass the complexity of a ‘Blindspotting’ series, ya dig?”
“So just get juiced, cuz’ it stars Jasmine Cephas Jones, it’s set in Oakland and we’re making it, so it’s lightweight finna to be hella good and the soundtrack will indeed slap. Oh Boy.”
Currently, there’s no word on when we can expect the spinoff series to debut via Starz.
