Jayohh // REVOLT

After producing Time: The Kalief Browder Story and signing on to do the same for both a docuseries and film about Trayvon Martin and a film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda's "In The Heights" play, Jay Z is now developing another screen project.

According to Variety, the rapper will executive-produce a new documentary series for National Geographic. Titled Race, it will explore systemic injustices in America.

The six episodes will "weave together documentary, animation and archival footage, [and] delve into crime and punishment, wealth inequality, the role of social media, activism and family."

Present-day stories from a diverse group of people including both immigrants and first-generation Americans will also be used.
