Vince Staples and Netflix team up to make more TV comedy gold
Los Gatos, California - Rapper and singer Vince Staples is about to share the story of his life in a new comedy series coming to Netflix.
According to Variety, the show, titled The Vince Staples Show, will also be executive produced by Kenya Barris, who is known for creating the popular TV comedy, Black-ish. He has also worked on Kid Cudi's upcoming animated Netflix series Entergalactic.
"It’s our mission to work with the best artists in the world," explained Tracey Pakosta, the head of comedy at Netflix. "Vince has already established himself as one of the most talented young musicians today, and we’re really excited about how his sensibility – and sense of humor – will translate into a unique comedy series."
Staples has slowly been making his way to TV, having appeared as himself in an episode of the HBO series Insecure and voicing the titular character of the animated Adult Swim show Lazor Wulf.
"I am excited to partner with Netflix and Kenya Barris on The Vince Staples Show," Staples said. "This has been something I have been developing for some time, and I am happy it’s coming to fruition."
Staples and Netflix have yet to put out a trailer or announce a release date for the new project.
