The Eternals star, hilarious comedian and thirst trap Kumail Nanjiani is teaming with Pam and Tommy creator Robert Siegel for the upcoming limited series Immigrant. No word yet on whether or not Nanjiani will appear shirtless.
Hulu picked up Immigrant straight-to-series with an episode order. Nanjiani will not only star but will serve as executive producer.
Immigrant is the true story of Somen “Steve” Banerjee (played by Nanjiani), the Indian-American entrepreneur who started Chippendales. The series will detail the insane, darkly comedic, crime-ridden story behind the unique male revue that became a cultural phenomenon.
The series is written by Siegel and executive produced by Siegel, Nanjiani, Dylan Sellers and Emily V. Gordon as well as Rajiv Joseph and Mehar Sethi who will also write on the series. 20th Television serves as the studio on the series.
We are parched and are totally ready for some Chippendale realness.
