Janelle Monaé will put her acting skills to the test once again in a new TV series honoring Josephine Baker‘s life. The eight-time Grammy-nominated artist and SAG Award winner is set to portray the iconic entertainer and civil rights activist in a forthcoming project from A24 titled “De La Resistance.” Monáe will produce the new series under their Wondaland banner.

Deadline reports that the drama series will focus on Baker’s glamorous, world-renowned entertainment career and her role as a French World War II spy. It’s currently being fought over by multiple streamers vying to debut the special project. At this time, the series does not have a set release date.

Before news of the TV series broke, Monáe befittingly modeled her 2022 Met Gala look after Baker. They paid homage to the famous figure by wearing a black 1920s-inspired gown embellished with jewels as a nod to the icon’s lavish style.

Monáe, who recently opened up about coming out as nonbinary, has starred in major films like “Antebellum,” “Hidden Figures,” and Oscar-winning pictureMoonlight.” She’s also been cast in “Knives Out 2,” which is expected to arrive sometime this year.
