Deadline Hollywood is exclusively reporting that actor Cedric Joe has been cast as Emmett Till in ABC's limited series Women of the Movement.
Women of the Movement is a six-episode limited series that will center on Mamie Till-Mobley, played by Adrienne Warren, who devoted her life to seeking justice for her son's brutal murder Emmett in the Jim Crow south.
Emmett Till, was only 14 years old when he was killed in Mississippi while vacationing with his family from Chicago. His mother, Mamie, chose to publicize the horror of his death to make sure Emmett's murder was not swept under the rug.
The series will premier in 2021, and part of the shows producing team includes Jay-Z and Will Smith.
I will be watching.
