In America’s constantly changing cultural landscape, Lena Waithe has already established herself as the cream of the crop. From her start as a writer on the detective drama Bones, to her more personal acting in Netflix’s Master of None, to behind-the-scenes production work on Dear White People and a recent Emmy win, Waithe is truly a force in Hollywood. In her latest work, Waithe has taken the reins, creating and showrunning Showtime’s newest drama, The Chi.
On the latest episode of GGN, Waithe joins Uncle Snoop in the studio to break down her path from Chicago’s South Side to Tinseltown, what it means to be a voice for young queer black women in the entertainment industry, and of course, the everlasting comedic genius of Martin.
So fire up your favorite strain and grab a seat alongside the Doggfather for an important conversation with one of television’s brightest torchbearers. And for more Lena Waithe, make sure to check out The Chi, every Sunday at 10pm on Showtime.
