According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will cover the intersectionality of sneaker culture and how it connects to racial, political, and gender identities. It will also explore how creativity and commerce impact how the culture shows up in our society.
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with Lena. She is a singular creative voice of her generation, and her passion for this subject is infectious,” executive producer of Boardwalk Pictures Andrew Fried told The Hollywood Reporter.
As a sneakerhead herself, Waithe points out how this culture isn’t just a part of her style but is ingrained into her personal and professional life. The writer-actress has more than 100 pairs of sneakers and has made fun of her shoe obsession in a recent Nike commercial as part of the company’s “Shoe Therapy” campaign.
