The comedy was first announced in 2022.

Set in Long Beach, CA, the fictional series is loosely inspired by Staples’ life. Here’s the official logline: Who’s Vince Staples? Well, that’s a tricky question. He’s kind of famous, but he’s not. He’s kind of rich, but he’s not. He’s also kind of a criminal. But he’s…not? Follow him on his daily adventures, where anything that can go wrong usually does.

The show is executive produced by Staples, Barris (Khalabo Ink Society), Corey Smyth, Edelman (Edelgang), Williams, and William Stefan Smith.

Staples has released four studio albums, Summertime 06, Big Fish Theory, FM! and his self-titled album in July 2021. When the project was first announced, Netflix Head of Comedy Tracey Pakosta said, “It’s our mission to work with the best artists in the world. Vince has already established himself as one of the most talented young musicians today and we’re really excited about how his sensibility – and sense of humor – will translate into a unique comedy series.”
