The 10-part series, “Doses of Draya,” promises a behind-the-scenes look at the actor-model-entrepreneur-social media influencer’s life as she builds her businesses and lets loose with her close friends.
“I’ve been on a pretty incredible journey over the past decade, and I’m grateful to my fans who have been with me through the ups and downs,” Draya Michele said in a statement. “As a woman of color, I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Zeus, a Black-owned streaming service, to share my story, and to let people into my daily life in a way I never really have before.”
She added, “I’ve come a long way, from humble beginnings, and have continued to reinvent myself and evolve my brands over and over. I hope my fans have appreciated my honesty along the way.”
Draya will serve as an executive producer for the series, which Zeus is billing as marking her “return to television.”
“We’re excited to welcome Draya into the Zeus family,” said Zeus co-founder and CEO Lemuel Plummer. “Viewers who have been following her journey will see her in a more personal way than ever before.”
