Blindspotting centers on Ashley, who is nipping at the heels of middle-class life in Oakland until Miles, her partner of 12 years and father of their son, is suddenly incarcerated, leaving her to navigate a chaotic and humorous existential crisis when she is forced to move in with Miles’ mother and half-sister.
The series stars Emmy Award winner Jasmine Cephas Jones, reprising her role in the film along with Benjamin Earl Turner, Atticus Woodward (Shameless), Jaylen Barron (Free Rein, Shameless), and Candace Nicholas-Lippman (Good Trouble). Oscar and Emmy winner Helen Hunt (As Good As It Gets, The Sessions) rounds out the cast as Miles’ mother.
The half-hour dramedy Blindspotting is executive produced by Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs, who also starred in the film in addition to writing and producing it. Casal also leads as the series showrunner and will direct an episode. Jess Wu Calder and Keith Calder of Snoot Entertainment (One Night In Miami, Anomalisa) reunite with Casal and Diggs as executive producers on the series, along with Emily Gerson Saines, Ken Lee, and Tim Palen of Barnyard. Seith Mann (#Freerayshawn, Homeland) also serves as an executive producer and director on the first two episodes of the series.
