The untitled project is described as a "surreal dark comedy" and loosely based off Fury's early beginnings in NYC. The show's lead character, Greg, a 20-something sarcastic gay black man navigating adulthood while struggling to wrap his head around his undiagnosed clinical depression.
Fury will serve as writer and co-executive producer on the series with Waithe executive producing. Chloe Pisello, David Martin, Jon Thoday, and Richard Allen-Turner of Avalon Television will also executive produce. Jason Kim will co-executive produce.
