Michael B. Jordan and Rashida Jones are to thank for a brand new release named ‘61st Street.’
Full story below…
The creative pals created the two-season TV series via Jordan’s Outlier Society production empire and will release it via AMC….home to ‘The Walking Dead.’
Its story will follow the journey of a young man named Moses Johnson whose life implodes when he is swept up into a tornado of chicanery after the police accuse him of being a gang member linked to the murder of an officer. As the story unfolds, the dark and evil truth of the matter unravels before the young athlete’s very eyes.
Having spent ten years at the criminal bar and the last two years researching deep inside the criminal justice system in Chicago, this is a story I’ve been waiting to write all my professional life. ‘61st Street’ is a thriller – supple plotting and dynamic storytelling are central to everything – but race, politics, history, jurisprudence, and police culture are all fundamental to what this project is about and broaden its scope into what I hope will be a story for our times. Working alongside Alana Mayo and Michael B. Jordan makes me happy and humble and I’m very grateful to AMC for their amazing support.
Stay tuned for a release date.
