From a media release:
AUBREY â€œDRAKEâ€ GRAHAM SIGNS WITH THE NIGHTINGALE COMPANY TO DEVELOP NEW COMEDY SERIES
The Nightingale Company is pleased to announce it is developing a new comedy series entitled â€œUS & THEMâ€ with â€œBy Any Means Necessary Productionsâ€ featuring Degrassi: The Next Generation stars Aubrey â€œDrakeâ€ Graham and Mazin Elsadig.
Loosely based on real life events, â€œUS & THEMâ€ is a show about two buddies, played by Aubrey and Mazin, who contrast yet compliment each other. These best friends â€“ and polar opposites â€“ come together in this tongue-in-cheek satire of the entertainment industry and their place in it. Though they may disagree about everything, Mazin and Aubrey will always have one phrase that they both feel rings true. â€œIt’s Us & Them.”
Aubrey Graham, fellow alumni of â€œDegrassi: The Next Generationâ€, is making a name for himself in the music industry under the stage name â€œDrakeâ€. Rolling Stones Magazine hails Aubrey as, â€œThe hottest MC in the gameâ€¦whoÊ¼s got girls, executives and rapÊ¼s biggest names hanging on every word.â€ A long-time protÃ©gÃ© of rap sensation Lil Wayne, Drake, recently signed with Lil WayneÊ¼s record company Young Money Entertainment.
Mazin ElsadigÊ¼s most recent credits include a two-year starring role on Degrassi: The Next Generation and a reccurring role on The Nightingale CompanyÊ¼s cable series The Line.
