When We Rise - ABC Commissions LGBT Miniseries
Move over HBO it seems.
Yup, ABC have commissioned LGBT mini-series, When We Rise as an eight hour/episode event and it will be made by Dustin Lance Black (Milk) and Gus Van Sant, the latter of whom will produce the series and direct the first two episodes.
The miniseries will focus on the latter generation of leaders in the LGBT equality movement. According to the press release, the series will ....
“chronicles the personal and political struggles, setbacks and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBT men and women who helped pioneer one of the last legs of the U.S. civil rights movement from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to its successes today.”
While casting for the upcoming miniseries has yet to be confirmed, When We Rise has been in discussion with ABC for the last two and a half years and it'll be interesting to find out the other names that will be attached to the project.
