Ava DuVernay to produce a ‘Central Park Five’ Mini-Series for Netflix (VIDEO)

Posted by | Ray Cornelius

Oscar nominated director and screenwriter Ava DuVernay is teaming up with Netflix again for a mini-series on “The Central Park Five.”  According to THR, DuVernay is going to pen the script and direct the project that will chronicle the story of five men of color—Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise—who were wrongly convicted of a brutal rape of a white women, Trisha Meili, in New York’s famed Central Park in 1989.  The case was regarded as “one of the most widely publicized crimes of the 1980s.”

“I had an extraordinary experience working with Netflix on 13th and am overjoyed to continue this exploration of the criminal justice system as a narrative project with Cindy Holland and the team there,” DuVernay said in a statement. “The story of the men known as the Central Park Five has riveted me for more than two decades. In their journey, we witness five innocent young men of color who were met with injustice at every turn — from coerced confessions to unjust incarceration to public calls for their execution by the man who would go on to be the president of the United States.”

DuVernay was nominated for an Academy Award for her first Netflix project, “13th,” which focused on race, justice and mass incarceration in America. Her next film is “A Wrinkle in Time.”

RC will keep you posted as this project continues to develop.
