Earlier in May, it was revealed that producer John Singleton was working with FX to deliver an upcoming drama pilot. For his series entitled Snowfall, they will base the story around the effects of the crack epidemic in Los Angeles during the 80’s. Yesterday on Instagram, Singleton shared that DeRay Davis has been recruited for the cast alongside Lauren London.
“DeRay Davis and Lauren London… Aka Jerome and Louie! My SNOWFALL family is growing.. We doing the flyest LA show ever. YAll gonna know.. Soon. SNOWFALL.. LA 1981.. A storm is coming to the city and its name is cocaine..,” Singleton shared.
From the look of things DeRay (Jerome) and London (Louie) will plays as a couple in the current pilot. Snowfall comes right after DeRay’s wrap of the first season of MTV2 series, ‘Joking Off’. Filming is set to begin this summer.
