Lena Waithe’s ‘The Chi’ Characters Share “Rules of The South Side”

Showtime The Chi

It’s not like we’re not already counting down to January 7th for the series premiere of Lena Waithe‘s self-executive produced The Chi and the writer/actor is making us even more antsy with one-of-a-kind promo for the show. While most shows only share trailer-teasers with sneak peeks of actual scenes, Waithe has decided to give us one-on-one time with Kevin, Papa and Jake played by Alex R. Hibbert, Shamon Brown Jr. and Michael Epps. This fun way of unexpectedly getting to know Kevin and his boys introduces us to the coming-of-age story, set in Chicago’s South Side, that will unfold throughout the series. Completely in character, the guys hip us to some game on adults and school with survival tips and the brotherly banter that will endear anyone to their bond even before seeing a full episode.

Until the January 7th premier of The Chi on Showtime, let Jake, Papa and Kevin school you on an array of subjects from safely navigating the streets of Chicago to surviving annoying parents and teachers below.
