HBO Max is presently producing a brand new comedy sequence based mostly on the lifetime of former gang member-turned-Chasidic-rapper Nissim Black.
Black, who lives in Israel, introduced the upcoming present on Twitter, writing that he hopes “this series brings Joy, and dispells [sic] a lot of the misinformation going on out there.”
He will co-produce the present with comic and veteran TV author Moshe Kasher, who regularly references his Jewish id in his work. It’s unclear if Black will star as himself within the present, in accordance with a Deadline report.
“Motherland Bounce,” the title of the sequence and the title of one in all Black’s lately launched singles, tells the story of how he went from promoting medicine in Seattle by age 12 to discovering a religious house in Orthodox Judaism and shifting to Jerusalem. In the track, he grapples along with his many alternative identities.
“There’s always these questions,” he advised Hey Alma in 2020. “Like, ‘Well, are you still Black? How Black are you? How does that work? But you’re also Jewish? Jews are white?’ No they’re not!”
Deadline reported that the sequence might be directed by Salli Richardson-Whitfield, an actress who has most lately directed episodes of the fantasy epic “The Wheel of Time” and the interval drama “The Gilded Age.”
