The Chi is a timely coming-of-age drama series centered on a group of residents who become linked by coincidence but bonded by the need for connection and redemption.

Created by: Lena Waithe
Starring: Jacob Latimore, Alex Hibbert, Shamon Brown, Michael Epps, Birgundi Baker, Luke James
“Waithe has created a series that doesn't provide a clear blueprint for its direction, which is part of what makes the show so bracing. The writing almost instantly gets past cliches to bring real depth to -- and investment in -- the characters.”
“The beauty of "The Chi" is the subtle way in which its main storylines advance while allowing the characters to grow with a potent realism.”
Entertainment Voice

“The Chi, Lena Waithe's Showtime series ... captures [its] truth more than any other Chicago-based series on television even as it grapples with the broad scope of its tangle of narratives.”
