Jay Z and Will Smith have partnered together to bring a new TV series which will highlight the Civil Rights Movement.

The project will be produced by Carter and Smith. Titled ‘Women of the Movement’ the series will have eight episodes which will air on ABC.

According to Essence:

The first season will center on the work of Emmett Till’s mother, Mamie Till, whose life was devoted to seeking justice for her son after his brutal murder in 1955. The series, written by Marissa Jo Cerar, is inspired by Devery S. Anderson’s book, Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked the World and Propelled the Civil Rights Movement.
