#Roommates, HBO Max continues to expand its original programming – and they are teaming up with Michael B. Jordan on a new project.
@ Variety reports that Michael B. Jordan added another project to his production company, Outlier Society, which is in the form of a new animated series. Michael has teamed up with HBO Max and inventor Obi Arisukwu to bring ‘OBI’ to HBO’s popular streaming service.
Along with the announcement, HBO Max also released a recap of the series, which is described as follows:
‘OBI’ is about a 30 year old male-child who pursues his dream of becoming an artist while navigating adulthood with his friends. ‘OBI’ is an adaptation of Obi Arisukwu’s popular Instagram comic. This project was created jointly by Obi Arisukwu and Arthur Harris (‘The Last OG’).
In addition to the production of Michael B. Jordan’s Outlier Society, the series is also produced by Michael Schreiber of Studio71 and David Devries.
While you might not know his name right away, you’ve certainly seen Arisukwu’s work as the popular cartoonist has a very loyal and dedicated following on social media thanks to his fun and relatable comics.
As the series has just been announced, there is currently no word on a premiere date or who will be part of the cast.
