CATCH UP ON THE HIT DRAMA "THE CHI" WHEN SHOWTIME(R) AIRS MINI MARATHONS ON SUNDAY FEBRUARY 4

New Episodes Resume On Sunday, February 11 At 10 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK - February 2, 2018 - Viewers will have the opportunity to catch up on the hit drama THE CHI when SHOWTIME airs mini marathons of the first four episodes on Sunday, February 4, starting at 12 p.m. ET/PT and 8 p.m. ET/PT. The series will resume with a new episode on Sunday, February 11 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. All episodes of THE CHI are also available on SHOWTIME streaming, SHOWTIME ANYTIME(R) and SHOWTIME ON DEMAND(R). Created and executive produced by Emmy(R) Award winner Lena Waithe (Master of None) and executive produced by Academy Award(R), Emmy and Golden Globe(R) winner Common (Selma), THE CHI explores the humanity behind the headlines sensationalizing the South Side of Chicago.

Recently renewed for a second season, THE CHI ranks as the best SHOWTIME series premiere since BILLIONS in 2016, averaging four million weekly viewers across platforms. Since its January 7 debut, the series has consistently grown its audience week after week - with its most recent episode outperforming the premiere by 41 percent. THE CHI has also been embraced and amplified on social media, consistently ranking among the top trending topics on Sunday nights on Twitter.

Shot entirely in its namesake city, THE CHI is a timely coming-of-age story centering on a group of residents who become linked by coincidence but bonded by the need for connection and redemption. The ensemble cast for season one includes Jason Mitchell (Mudbound, Straight Outta Compton), Jacob Latimore (Sleight), Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine (Queen of Katwe), Alex Hibbert (Moonlight), Yolonda Ross (Treme, The Get Down), Armando Riesco (Bull) and Tiffany Boone (The Following). Kevin (Hibbert) is the pre-teen who must step past shattered illusions and embrace the normal rites of childhood, while Brandon (Mitchell) the dreamer makes his own nearly impossible leap of faith to succeed in life and love with girlfriend Jerrika (Boone). Emmett (Latimore) is the carefree teen thrust into the complex responsibility of fatherhood with guidance from his mother Jada (Ross), and Ronnie (Mwine) is the drifter whose struggle to love and be loved calls into question his every pursuit. Sonja Sohn (The Wire), Jahking Guillory (Kicks), and Steven Williams (The Leftovers) recur in season one. In addition to Waithe and Common, Elwood Reid (The Bridge, Hawaii Five-O) and Aaron Kaplan (Santa Clarita Diet, Divorce) serve as executive producers for season one, along with Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), who also directed the pilot episode, and Derek Dudley and Shelby Stone of Freedom Road Productions.
