    Empire star Jussie Smollett serves as executive producer of GIANTS, the latest project from writer, director and actor James Bland. The series is set to premiere on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at 8:00 PM, ET/5:00 PM, PT via ColorCreative.TV on Issa Rae's (HBO's Insecure)Youtube Channel.




    Giants is a scripted drama digital series starring Bland, along with child star Vanessa Baden Kelly ("Kenan & Kel," "Rosewood") and new-comer Sean Samuels. The show follows three black millennials: Malachi (Bland), Journee (Baden Kelly) and Ade (Samuels), each battling their own inner giants as they approach age 30. Giants transcends the typical coming of age story by pushing new boundaries of very real issues including mental health, sexual identity, religious skepticism and unorthodox methods of economic survival.

    "Giants explores social issues that are either ignored or stigmatized by the black community," said Bland. "And regardless of race, these characters' experiences are relatable to almost anyone because they learn the hard way that when life kicks your ass, you either lie down or fight back."

    Giants is the newest series to join a collection of diverse content featured on Rae's Youtube channel under the ColorCreative.TV banner. ColorCreative.TV was founded by Issa Rae and Producer Deniese Davis to raise awareness for writers from diverse backgrounds, and provide a springboard for their careers by producing and selling their work to digital, network and cable platforms. Since premiering the award-winning comedic web series, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl in 2011, the channel has exploded with 240,000 subscribers and over 50 million views collectively across all content.

    Watched the first episode. It's a really cool show, a little slow at first but I can't wait to see the characters progress. Plus I love Vanessa lol Thanks for bringing this show to my attention!

    So I started watching this about a week ago. I didn't miss much because it's only 3 episodes deep--so really I guess I started watching around the same time as everyone else lol.

    The first episode didn't "wow" me, but I decided to give it a chance. It picked up a little by episode 2. It's a decent series so far. It's entertaining...

    When I realized that was Vanessa from Gullah Gullah's Island and Kenan & Kel, I nearly lost it lol. Okay I'm being overly dramatic, but I was so shocked because I completely forgot about her! Definitely a blast from the past.

    Just caught up on the last two episodes. Wow, this show has gotten so good. The characters are so relatable. Their stories really hit a soft spot with me.
