Sorry To Bother You director Boots Riley has teased a new project called I’m A Virgo.
“I have a show about a 13-ft tall Black man who lives in Oakland. It’s called I’m A Virgo,” Riley tweeted.
“It’ll be dark, absurd, hilarious, and important,” he added.

Joining Riley, Michael Ellenberg’s Media Res will help steer the project towards success. While the Bay Area native did not reveal the entire cast, he did note that Moonlight‘s Jharrel Jerome will star in it.
At the moment, Riley’s latest work does not have a home. However, the last two shows that Ellenberg’s studio has produced, The Morning Show and Pachinko, have landed at Apple. With that being said, Riley’s Sorry To Bother You currently resides at Hulu. Either streaming platform seemingly could be the home of the new show.
