US director Spike Lee reportedly has a new TV series in the pipeline, with rising star Chad Sanders set to play a central role.

As Variety details, the series — to be titled Archer — will be a dark comedy and sociological thriller capturing the life of a 20-something African-American coding genius and iconoclast living in Brooklyn who has developed a dating app that reads sexual chemistry.

Sanders – both the creator and star of the series, in addition to serving as executive producer, writer, and director – will portray the key character, described as a “young, black Mark Zuckerberg-like protagonist”.

The project is said to be loosely based on the life of Sanders, a tech entrepreneur who has previously held roles at Google, as well the intensive coding school Dev Bootcamp, and recently founded the business development agency Archer Genius Management — hence, the title of the series.

The show would mark Lee’s latest TV conquest, with the filmmaker’s upcoming Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It slated to debut this November.
