Marvel’s Don Cheadle Does Black Lives Matter Origin Show

Marvel star Don Cheadle will executive produce a series about the origin of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Deadline reports that the critically acclaimed book by Wesley Lowery They can’t kill us all is made into a TV show at AMC. Cheadle serves as co-executive producer with Lowery and Brad Weston.

Like the book, the series will offer a look at the movement since its inception in Ferguson, Missouri, after the shooting of Michael Brown at the hands of a white police officer in 2014.

Lowery’s book – which won the 2017 Christopher Isherwood Award for Autobiographical Prose from the LA Times – features several interviews conducted over more than a year of reporting from the field.

The author and journalist has researched some of the most surveilled areas in the United States to document life in these neighborhoods.

Lowery traveled from Ferguson to Cleveland, Ohio and to Charleston, South Carolina and Baltimore, Maryland, then back to Ferguson.

The release date for the series has yet to be confirmed.
