Grammy Award winning artist John Legend has sold a new series to HBO. The drama is titled “Down Lo”, and will be set in South Beach. It will feature intersecting story lines, one of which includes a gay rapper living on the “down low”.
This is Legend’s 3rd scripted series to be sold under his exclusive deal with Universal Cable Productions and his Gift Lifted Film Company.
This is a smart move on John’s part. Because with the recent debates of “down low” rappers in the music industry, the series will be sure to get tongues wagging.
