The new digital series “GIANTS” has been hailed for its celebration of true #BlackBoyJoy and now the black millennial web series is leading the pack with 11 Daytime Emmy nominations!
The coming-of-adulthood drama series was created by James Bland and was originally streamed on “Insecure” creator Issa Rae’s YouTube channel.
