Adrienne Warren To Star In ABC's 'The Women of the Movement'

Tony Award nominee Adrienne Warren is set to star in ABC's upcoming miniseries The Women of the Movement.

Warren will play Mamie Till-Mobley, who spent her life seeking justice after the murder of her son, Emmett Till, in the Jim Crow-era South. The show was created by Marissa Jo Cerar and was based on Devery S. Anderson's Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked the World and Propelled the Civil Rights Movement.

The Women of the Movement is expected to premiere in 2021 in a six-episode series.
