Megan Thee Stallion is getting into the Halloween spirit: The rapper has shared the first episode of Megan Thee Stallion PI in Hottieween, her brand-new horror-themed YouTube series.
Hottieween premiered its first episode titled Love Bites on October 30. According to the episode’s synopsis, the series is set in the fictional Stallion County and follows the adventures of Megan, who plays a private investigator. Joined by her sidekick Janice (played by Jay Cole), Megan takes on a case to hunt down a “vicious group of fuccbois.” Rapper Dave East also stars as a mysterious informant named Archimedes.
According to the show’s official description, Megan conceptualized Hottieween herself. It’s directed by Teyana Taylor and made in collaboration with YouTube Music. The show takes inspiration from “campy horror classics and blaxploitation heroines,” and also marks the Houston rapper’s first foray into acting.
The web series arrived after Megan previously teased on Vogue that she was working on her debut horror film. In the video interview, the rapper claimed she “fucking loves horror movies,” and named Sam Raimi’s 1981 film, The Evil Dead, as one of her favorites. “I like movies that make you semi-fall in love with the villain, so you have sympathy for him,” she said. “I feel like every good story you can’t just necessarily kill off the villain.”
Right now, it’s unclear how many episodes Hottieween will run, but you can watch the first one below:
