Can’t get tickets to “Hamilton” by the time Lin-Manuel Miranda departs? Fear not. Miranda, “Hamilton” co-star Christopher Jackson, and a variety of other musical geniuses are coming to a streaming service near you. “Freestyle Love Supreme,” a musical improv show named after Miranda’s original rap improv group, is based on performances in which the group turned audience suggestions into riffs and full-length songs.
The original series aired on Pivot in 2014 and now is being rebooted on streaming service Seeso. New episodes will include brand new material from the original cast, which includes Miranda, Jackson, Chris Sullivan, Utkarsh Ambudkar and Anthony Veneziale. Jackson and Miranda aren’t the only “Hamilton” alums behind the show: Director Thomas Kail co-created the original “Freestyle Love Supreme” with Veneziale.
“It’s crazy to think about how long we’ve been performing as a group. The number of boy bands we’ve outlived in that time is staggering! No matter what happens in each of our lives, we all come back to ‘Freestyle Love Supreme.’ It’s our touchstone, and it’s gratifying to be able to share this series anew with the world,” Miranda said in the release.
The series will be available on all Seeso platforms on June 23rd. Get a taste of “Freestyle Love Supreme” in the clip below.
