We first reported that the Emmy award winning Master of None star (and history maker) that is Lena Waithe was developing her new Showtime series, The Chi, at the start of the New Year. Tweeting, “I rep #TheChi everywhere I go, if you’re feeling the teaser hit that retweet button,” Waithe released a sneak peak for what is already seemingly going to be a captivating show. Yolonda Ross, Tiffany Boone, Jason Mitchell, Armando Riesco, Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine, Alex Hibbert and Jacob Latimore are set to star in the loosely autobiographical series as well as Waithe herself. The Common co-excutive produced series will premiere on Jan. 7.

Hot on the heels of her historic Emmy win as the first black woman to ever win for writing in a comedy series, we cannot wait to see what is to come for this pioneer. Take a first look at the high-energy teaser below.
