Pharrell and Lena Waithe are bringing a roller skating comedy to HBO Max.

On Wednesday (Sept. 21), Variety reported that Waithe's Hillman Grad Productions and Williams' i am OTHER are teaming up for an upcoming single-camera comedy called Rollin.

Rollin will feature a "ragtag rink crew" who discovers drive and deliverance on the hardwood at a "skating rink known for its good music, food, vibes, and stellar stunts."

The duo's next series will be part of the 38-year-old's overall agreement with Warner Bros. Television Group. Hillman Grad CEO Rishi Rajani, Hillman president of film and television Naomi Funabashi, and Waithe serve as the project's executive producers. Mimi Valdés, Shani Saxon, and Pharrell will also executive produce Rollin under their i am Other brand.

Hillman Grad Productions was founded in 2015 and has since become a dominant force in the television and film industry. Waithe's dedication to telling stories that feature marginalized groups and individuals has allowed their storytelling to be redefined in the face of the status quo.

The Chi, produced by Showtime, and the BET+ original drama Birth of Cool, have been successful.
