Actor and director Nate Parker is back directing a new digital series called Baseline.
Baseline is about a family living in inner city Los Angeles that’s fighting to protect their aspiring pro basketball player from the dangers of their neighborhood. Similar to the show Queen Sugar and the film American Honey, it’s said that show is on the hunt for, “Black/American…raw, gritty, not-insecure” actors.
The show begins filming on February 16 and will go on for one week. In that time, the hope is to film 10 six-minute episodes to get picked up by a network.
