Canadian Star Aubrey "Drake" Graham To Be Cast in US Series

From a media release – July 28, 2009:


The Nightingale Company is pleased to announce it is developing a new comedy series entitled “US & THEM” with “By Any Means Necessary Productions” featuring Degrassi: The Next Generation stars Aubrey “Drake” Graham and Mazin Elsadig.

Loosely based on real life events, “US & THEM” is a show about two buddies, played by Aubrey and Mazin, who contrast yet compliment each other. These best friends – and polar opposites – come together in this tongue-in-cheek satire of the entertainment industry and their place in it. Though they may disagree about everything, Mazin and Aubrey will always have one phrase that they both feel rings true. “It’s Us & Them.”

Aubrey Graham, fellow alumni of “Degrassi: The Next Generation”, is making a name for himself in the music industry under the stage name “Drake”. Rolling Stones Magazine hails Aubrey as, “The hottest MC in the game…whoʼs got girls, executives and rapʼs biggest names hanging on every word.” A long-time protégé of rap sensation Lil Wayne, Drake, recently signed with Lil Wayneʼs record company Young Money Entertainment.

Mazin Elsadigʼs most recent credits include a two-year starring role on Degrassi: The Next Generation and a reccurring role on The Nightingale Companyʼs cable series The Line.
