Announced last November, The Chi, Showtime’s gritty new drama detailing life in the South Side of Chicago, is finally set to premiere this Sunday at 10pm ET/PT.
Created and produced by Emmy-awarding winning actress Lena Waithe of Master of None fame, and executive produced by Common and Elwood Reid, the series is filmed entirely in its namesake city.
The Chi is a coming-of-age story that centers on a group of residents who become linked by coincidence but are bonded by the need for connection and redemption.
Featuring an ensemble cast that includes Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton), Jacob Latimore (Sleight), Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine (Queen of Katwe), Alex Hibbert (Moonlight), Yolonda Ross (Treme, The Get Down), Armando Riesco (Bull) and Tiffany Boone (The Following), the stacked talent is reason enough to peep the show.
The Chi premieres tonight, January 7 at 10pm ET/PT, only on Showtime.
