Shadow and Act has an exclusive clip from this week’s upcoming episode of Blindspotting starring Jasmine Cephas Jones.
The clip features Jones as Ashley, Candace Nicholas-Lippman as Janelle and Jaylen Barron as Trish.
Inspired by the critically-acclaimed film of the same name, the project hails from Lionsgate TV. Lionsgate was the distributor of the original film which was written by and starred Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal. Cephas Jones, who portrayed Ashley in the original film, stars in the lead role for the series and reprises her role. Casal and Diggs wrote and produce the series version and Casal is the showrunner.
Benjamin Earl Turner, Atticus Woodward and Helen Hunt also star. Casal also reprises his role.
The series “picks up six months after the film and centers on Ashley, who is nipping at the heels of a middle-class life in Oakland until Miles, her partner of 12 years and father of their son, is suddenly incarcerated, leaving her to navigate a chaotic and humorous existential crisis when she is forced to move in with Miles’ mother and half-sister.”
