Comedian and former correspondent for The Daily Show Jaboukie Young-White is teaming up with Issa Rae for a new HBO series.
The series, Gang’s All Queer, is based on a 2017 book The Gang’s All Queer: The Lives of Gay Gang Members by Vanessa R. Panfil. The series follows “a closeted 20-something in Chicago who, grieving a gang-related death, ditches college to find closure.”
Young-White is penning the script for the series and also serving as executive producer, alongside Issa Rae. Also executive producing the show will be Jonathan Berry, Olivia Gerke, Dave Becky, and Sara Rastogi.
