Published: Wednesday 13th Jan 2021 by Sam

As the age old adage goes, when one door closes another opens. Just ask Yvonne Orji!

For, fresh from the announcement that her HBO series ‘Insecure’ is set to end after its upcoming fifth season, it’s been revealed that Orji is heading to Disney+ for an exciting venture.

Full story below…

According to Variety, the star is officially developing a semi-autobiographical comedy series at the streamer.

In a major move, fellow Nigerian  David Oyelowo and Oprah Winfrey are amongst its executive producers.

The half-hour show, which is named ‘First Gen,’ is rooted in Orji’s personal experiences growing up as a Nigerian immigrant in America.

Echoing Orji’s expressed reality upon moving to the US, the protagonist finds herself torn between trying to honor her parents and culture while als trying to assimilate to American life.

Orji is serving as executive producer and writer of the project; which will mark her first scripted series writing credit.

Mega moves! We love to see it.
