R. Kelly's "Trapped in the Closet" Saga Is Far From Over

By |

Still trying to decide if R. Kelly's hip-hopera "Trapped in the Closet" is genius or ridiculous? (Face it: It's both.) We'll all get a chance to re-examine this fascinating labyrinth of sex, guns and deceit because IFC has acquired ten new installments of the series, which follows the comically raunchy, melodramatic life of a character called Sylvester, played by Kelly. The first twelve episodes were released on DVD early in 2006 and Kelly has since strongly hinted that more episodes would follow (he says he "always thought of 'Trapped' as an independent film"). IFC plans to air the original twelve episodes plus the ten new ones so everyone can properly catch up. No word yet on when the new episodes will be filmed.
