Will Smith And Jay Z To Develop Emmett Till Series For HBO | TV News
In a long stream of controversial projects that HBO has aired, comes a new mini-series which sees the television giant teaming up with Will Smith, Jay Z and Aaron Kaplan to bring the story of Emmett Till to the small screen. Emmett Till was a true life 14 year old African American who was kidnapped, tortured, beaten and shot in 1955, following the accusation that he had flirted with a white 21 year old woman. The perpetrator was the womans’ husband Roy Bryant and friend J.W. Milam. Both were acquitted with a murder charge. The three named celebrities have just signed contracts to produce the 6-part series, but nothing more has been discussed in terms of what angle the series will take, who is to direct or when it will be released.
