Emmy-nominated Insecure co-star Yvonne Orji is tapping into her experience as a Nigerian-born, first-generation American in First Gen, a half-hour comedy, which is in development at Disney+. She has A-list collaborators on the project in British-born Nigerian-American actor David Oyelowo and Oprah Winfrey. 20th Television is the studio. Orji executive produces with Harpo’s Winfrey and Carla Gardini and Oyelowo via his Yoruba Saxon Productions.

Written by Orji, First Gen is based on Orji’s personal experiences growing up as a Nigerian immigrant in America. As a child, she’s caught between trying to honor her parents and culture while simultaneously trying to assimilate to American life.
