Being a millennial is one thing that I can attest to very well. We are the generation that spearheaded technology and came up with new and exciting creations. One thing that people may say about millennials is that we add drama into literally everything. Just like other generations, we have our ups and downs, we fight, we feel oppressed, and we overall experience life as any other person. These truths are portrayed heavily in the Emmy Award-winning series Giants.
Last week, it was announced that seasons 1 and 2 of Giants would begin streaming on BET+.
Giants is a drama series that journeys through the lives of three friends each battling their own inner giants as they navigate adulthood. How many of you can relate?
The good thing about this show is that it relates to us in dramatic ways. The struggles of life can sometimes weigh down on you heavily, but you find a way to get through it. This is what this show is all about.
Creator James Bland has been praised for this show and its authentic portrayal of the Black millennial experience. Giants has won at the Daytime Emmy's, Streamys, the Indie Series Awards, and the International Academy of Web and Television Awards.
With what this show portrays, and the history and legacy of BET, this was a duo like no other. "The first network pitch I ever had was with BET. I pitched a college comedy series and the network passed. 10 years later I created Giants and didn't pitch it to any networks. Now, we're streaming on BET+", James Bland states.
It also looks like a movie is in the works. Bland recently posted a photo on Instagram of a script with the caption "The Journee continues... #GiantsTheMovie".
You can subscribe to the BET+ app for a free 7-day trial. After that, it's only $9.99 per month. The app is available to download in the App Store and Google Play Store. You can also stream online.
