The project comes from Viola Davis and Julius Tennon’s JuVee Productions, along with feature’s writers Julia Hart and Jordan Horowitz and their Original Headquarters as well as Mickey Liddell’s LD Entertainment, reports deadline.com.
The film, co-written by Hart and Horowitz, directed by Hart and released by Lionsgate/Code Black in April, features three generations of black women, Ruth (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), her mom Bo (Lorraine Toussaint) and Ruth’s daughter Lila (Saniyya Sidney), at the center of an original science fiction world.
It premiered to critical praise at SXSW in 2018 and drew social media buzz. The film was released on BluRay/DVD/VOD on July 16.
The television series will follow Ruth, a former drug addict and runaway, who returns home and rediscovers the special powers she thought she lost, powers that her family have long kept hidden from the public.
Three Generations of black women reconnect and as they learn more about themselves and the generations who came before, they begin to realize that one of them could save the world.
