Sanaa Lathan Snags Lead in Fox Series
Filmmaker Gina Price- Bythewood doesn’t post often on Instagram, but when she does, you get awesome announcements like this:
"I use my art as a weapon." So excited about the next! 10 hour event series on Fox. Producing with Reggie Rock and Imagine. And starring my mf muse @sanaalathan. She is gonna kill it. And we are gonna force the world to listen. Dedicated to my two beautiful boys and all sons and daughters whose blackness has been weaponized. #indictment #blacklivesmatter #sanaalathan #thebythewoods
Yep! Gina and Sanaa Lathan are teaming up again for, “Indictment”, an intense 10-episode event series to air on Fox.
Gina’s production takes on the aftermath of the racially-charged police shooting involving an African American cop and White teen in Tennessee.
Sanaa takes lead on the series, playing an expert investigator, summoned by the Department of Justice and paired with a special prosecutor to seek justice while manning media and social unrest.
Referring to Sanaa as her “muse”, the series marks the first time the two have worked together since the cult-classic “Love and Basketball.”
Price-Bythewood’s latest project was the music-industry inspired ‘Beyond The Lights’ starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
We’ll keep you posted on further casting and the series debut.
This is going to be good.
