Jaden Smith wants to encourage teens and young adults with a new Snapchat original series “The Solution Committee”. The series will nourish viewers with simplified answers about some of the injustices society encounters, and how young activists are working to create significant improvements. Jaden Smith has also recruited some of his well known famous friends to add encouragement towards their focus.
Other young adult stars will be joining Jaden Smith on the new Snapchat series.
Each episode will star Smith as well as other celebs, including “Grown-ish” star Yara Shahidi, Hailey Baldwin, and his sister Willow Smith. They will be discussing social issues such as climate change, voting, and criminal justice reform. Other celebrity guests who will be featured on the series including Common, Bella Hadid, Janelle Monáe, and Phoebe Robinson.
Snapchat has also released a trailer where Jaden discusses their “gameplan.”
“Welcome to the show where we bring people together to talk about complex issues. This show is about educating the youth and making sure they feel empowered and ready to vote,” Smith says in a trailer.
“It can be very daunting for people, especially young people when they want to change the world. How does one do that?” Lena Waithe points out.
“Historically people between the ages of 18 to 23 have been less likely to vote. This is because a lot of young people feel like they don’t have the information or know where to get it,” Smith wrote on Instagram, as he spoke about the objective behind the new series.
“On top of being a world-class entertainer, Jaden has dedicated so much of his life to finding innovative ways to shine a light on injustice,” Brad Haugen, president of Westbrook Media, had said in a recent press release. “Beyond encouraging young people to vote, Jaden and his friends show why we should all care about these systemic issues and what we can do to fix them. After working with the fantastic team at Snap-on Will From Home, we know this series can attract real attention which will hopefully lead to some necessary change.”
The eight-episode series will debut on Monday, Sept. 21, with new episodes airing on Snapchat’s Discover page on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
