'I'm a Virgo' will star Jharrel Jerome
Riley's next work is called I'm a Virgo, and it's a television show. In an announcement post, Riley explained that they haven't decided on a network or streamer for series just yet.
He did reveal, however, that it's "about a 13-ft tall Black man who lives in Oakland." Said man will be played by Jharrel Jerome (Moonlight, Selah and the Spades, Mr. Mercedes).
In the replies to his announcement, Riley confirmed that each episode of the show will feature a new song from the Coup. Further, he said that Tune-Yards will provide the score for the series.
