Blindspotting looks set for a TV spinoff that will feature star Jasmine Cephas Jones.
Written by Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs, who co-wrote, starred in and produced the original film, the spinoff series is a half-hour dramedy from Lionsgate TV. It centers on Ashley (Jones), who was 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’s forced to move in with Miles’ mother and half-sister. Her world is turned upside down while the neighborhood goes inside out, and she must renegotiate her relationship with a town that is caught between two conflicting identities.
Starz is set to adapt the film which had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival back in January 2018.
