Tavi Gevinson Will Star in New David Bowie Instagram Series

+

InstaMiniSeries, a channel that creates episodic programming exclusively for Instagram, will debut its highly anticipated, “UNBOUND: A ★ InstaMiniSeries,” on Feb. 25, starring Rookie Editor-in-Chief Tavi Gevinson and Actress Patricia Clarkson.

The 16-episode series will premiere a set of 15-second videos each week, featuring evocative visual interpretations for each track from the late David Bowie’s 28th studio album, Blackstar. Prior to Bowie’s passing last month, the “Space Oddity” star gave the channel early access to his then forthcoming album to complete the visuals “with no limits or preconditions.”

According to the series’ producers Carolynn Celicia and Nikki Borges, “David Bowie was a trailblazer, not just in the world of music, but in the art of storytelling. Whether through lyrics, melodies, film, theater or mythical persona, he never fails to transcend what was and set the tone—and the bar—for what can be.” Watch the series preview, below:
