Studio71 has a new animated series in production at HBO Max.

Titled Obi, it follows a 30-year-old man-child chasing his dream to become an artist while navigating adulthood with his friends.

Produced by Michael B Jordan’s Outlier Society, Michael Schreiber for Studio71, and David Devries, Obi is an adaptation of Obi Arisukwu’s popular Instagram comic strip.

The project is co-created by Obi Arisukwu and Arthur Harris (The Last OG).

The announcement follows on from Studio71’s development of new adventure mystery TV series Lost Island.
