R. Kelly set to revisit 'Trapped in the Closet'
Ready for more salacious drama, singsong monologues and hilarious antics from Sylvester, Twan and Pimp Lucius? Good, because Grammy-winning R&B king R. Kelly is finally revisiting his cult classic “Trapped in the Closet.”
The singer’s campy hip-hopera originally began as a five-video series to accompany the melodramatic segment of songs on his 2005 disc, “TP.3 Reloaded.” Fan demand made the singer add more and more chapters, and roll out the accompanying videos on DVD.
He’s again teaming up with IFC to premiere the latest in the saga and promises the new installments will be out of this world. Considering the first 22 chapters featured an extremely complicated storyline that featured sexual exploits, little people and a mysterious package, it's impossible to doubt Kelly.
Kelly will continue to executive produce, write, star and co-direct the series, set to air later this year on IFC. The singer is also readying his upcoming album “Write Me Back.”
