Netflix has announced it has commissioned The Vince Staples Show, a fictional comedy series loosely inspired Vince Staples and his life story.
Staples is joined by producers Kenya Barris, best known for creating Black-ish, Corey Smyth and Calmatic. Showrunners for the series are Ian Edelman and Maurice Williams, who worked alongside Barris on Kid Cudi's upcoming animated show Entergalactic.
"I am excited to partner with Netflix and Kenya Barris on The Vince Staples Show," Staples said in a statement. "This has been something I have been developing for some time and I am happy it’s coming to fruition."
The Netflix series marks Staples' biggest screen role to date. In recent years he has appeared in small roles in both Insecure and the upcoming White Men Can't Jump reboot. A short version of The Vince Staples Show debuted in 2019.
Earlier this year Staples released his latest album Ramona Park Broke My Heart, a sister project to 2021's Vince Staples.
