Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan premiered earlier this month to the largest Live +3 lifts for a series premiere on Nickelodeon in three years.
Executive produced, directed and written by Perry, Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan follows a family whose world is turned upside down when their nephew, Young Dylan (Gilmer), an aspiring hip-hop star, moves in unannounced, and a clash of styles ensues.
The rising young actor and hip hop artist is also known for his appearances and rap performances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and is also a frequent correspondent for DeGeneres’ EllenTube.
Gilmer learned he would be starring in his own series last October when Perry made a surprise visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show when Gilmer was a guest and made the announcement.
Most recently Gilmer did a guest appearance and performance on the Nickelodeon series, All That.
He continues to be repped by The Green Room’s Sherry Kayne, and attorney Chris Abramson of Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson.
