Bryshere Gray is branching out.
The Empire star has been tapped to star in the independent drama Canal Street.
“Canal Street” is a story about the reasons for the deep-seated divisions within the city of Chicago and the city’s diversity, touching on themes of family, friendship, and forgiveness.
“‘Canal Street’ is a visual and emotional tour guide that will challenge your perspective through every character and ultimately inspire you to stop waiting on change to happen to you but rather through you,” said Kevin Mullins, who is exec producing.
Other leads in the film include Yancey Arias, Lance Reddick, Katie Chang and more.
Canal Street follows Bryshere’s leading role in BET’s hit miniseries, The New Edition Story.
