The upcoming new series for Starz, Blindspotting, is actually a series adaptation of the hit 2018 indie dramedy of the same name. In fact, it's an apparent continuation that focuses on many of the same characters from the movie though many of those characters have been recast except for Jasmine Cephas Jones returning as the show's lead, Ashley. The synopsis for the upcoming eight-episode, half hour series is as follows:
Blindspotting picks up six months after the film and centers on Ashley, who is nipping at the heels of 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 is forced to move in with Miles’ mother and half-sister.
The series will make it's world premiere debut as an Official Selection of the Tribeca Film Festival on Friday, June 11 before the show official premieres on Starz that Sunday (June 13th) at 9:00 PM ET/PT. The show is the creation of the film's stars/writers/producers Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal. Casal, who played Miles in the original film, will return to play the character as a recurring role though Casal will primarily serve as showrunner for the series (and will direct an episode).
