Seth MacFarlane & Chadwick Boseman team for Little Rock Nine miniseries
Seth MacFarlane (The Orville) is keeping his upcoming roster of TV projects full as he is teaming up with Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) to executive produce a limited series centered on the Little Rock Nine, according to The Wrap.
Based on Carlotta Walls LaNier’s memoir A Mighty Long Way: My Journey to Justice at Little Rock Central High, the official synopsis for the series reads as follows:
Walls LaNier, who is the youngest member of the Little Rock Nine and the first African-American woman to graduate from the integrated high school, will serve as a consultant on the miniseries, while She’s Gotta Have It alum Eisa Davis is set to write and executive produce alongside MacFarlane and Huggins for the latter’s Fuzzy Door, Boseman and Logan Coles for the latter’s X-ception Content, Nick Marell, Cody Greenberg and Joe Micucci.
The limited series is currently set at NBCUniversal’s Universal Content Productions under the recent overall deal MacFarlane’s Fuzzy Door inked with the studio. MacFarlane is also currently developing a miniseries adaptation of The Winds of War for UCP.
