Jay-Z And Will Smith To Bring The Story Of Emmett Till to ABC!

Published

on

After being shelved for four years by HBO, a program about Emmett Till’s story will finally be hitting the airwaves. But it will airing via ABC! Jay-Z and Will Smith have reportedly been tapped to executive produce the series, which will be told from the perspective of Till’s mother, Mamie Till-Mobley.

A Deadline report says the documentary will be women-driven and a part of a civil rights anthology series titled Women of the Movement. It’s slated to center around Till-Mobley reliving the horror of her son’s 1955 Mississippi lynching and be the eight-episode debut season.

After the Netflix hit “When They See Us,” maybe more stories like this will be told on powerful platforms. I don’t know about you, but I am here for all of it! Thanks Jay and Will!
