The cultural phenomenon Trapped in the Closet is coming back to IFC with more chapters filled with intense drama, crazy situations and tumultuous relationships. The ultimate hip hopera returns in 2014 exclusively on IFC with brand new chapters featuring entertainment icon and multi-platinum recording artist R. Kelly.
Here's what IFC president Jennifer Caserta had to say about the show in a statement.
"R. Kelly is an enormously talented artist and his creativity is on full display in Trapped in the Closet. We are fortunate to be his partner in this one-of-a-kind project that has captivated viewers and can't wait to bring the next chapters of Trapped to IFC."
In addition to starring in nearly every scene, R. Kelly is also creator, executive producer and co-director of Trapped in the Closet. Born entirely from his creative vision, characters Sylvester, Rufus, Cathy, Tina, Roxanne, Rosie the Nosy Neighbor, Randolph, Twan, Pimp Lucius, Dr. Perry, Reverend Moseley and kingpin Beeno all return to this epic saga with more secrets, infidelity and unyielding passion to save their relationships.
Trapped in the Closet is produced by Sylvester Films and Ann Carli for IFC. Jim Swaffield co-directs.
