Emmy-winning actress Lena Waithe has been tapped to host a brand new show based around sneaker culture titled You Ain't Got These. The program will be added to the lineup on Jeffrey Katzenberg's new mobile streaming platform Quibi.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the short form series will have Waithe exploring aspects of today's sneaker culture. More specifically, it will highlight various figures to speak on the race, politics, class, gender, creativity, commerce, addiction and self-expression involved within its community. Waithe will also act as the series' executive producer alongside Boardwalk Pictures.
"We are thrilled to be collaborating with Lena. She is a singular creative voice of her generation, and her passion for this subject is infectious," executive producer of Boardwalk Pictures Andrew Fried told The Hollywood Reporter.
Katzenberg's Quibi service will play host to additional programming from notable filmmakers like Guillermo del Toro, Antoine Fuqua, and Sam Raimi as well. A premiere date for You Ain't Got These has yet to be announced.
