Niecy Nash to star in Women Of The Movement

Claws star Niecy Nash will be starring opposite Adrienne Warren in ABC’s limited series Women of the Movement.

Marissa Jo Cerar is on board as creator-writer and will be joining forces with producing team that includes Jay-Z, Will Smith and Aaron Kaplan.

The upcoming series centers on Mamie Till-Mobley (Warren), who devoted her life to seeking justice for her son Emmett Till.

Nash will play Alma, Emmett Till’s grandmother. After Emmett’s 1955 murder in Mississippi, Alma, a young grandmother who had been like a second mother to Emmett, fought to protect her family in Chicago while her daughter Mamie traveled the country seeking justice in Emmett’s name. A force of nature, Alma was Mamie’s rock in the face of unbelievable tragedy, Deadline reports.

Women of the Movement is inspired by the book Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked the World and Propelled the Civil Rights Movement by Devery S. Anderson. Cerar serves as showrunner and executive produces with Jay-Z, Jay Brown and Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith via Roc Nation; Will Smith and James Lassiter for Overbrook; as well as Aaron Kaplan, Dana Honor and Michael Lohmann of Kapital Entertainment. Also executive producing are Gina Prince-Bythewood, who will direct the first episode, Rosanna Grace for Serendipity Film Group; Alex Foster and John Powers Middleton of Middleton Media Group; and David Clark via Mazo Partners. Kapital Entertainment is the studio.

The upcoming movie is set to premiere in 2021,
