Patrisse Cullors is making big moves outchea!
The co-founder of the Black Lives Matter has signed a multi-year overall deal with Warner Bros. Television Group.
Under the new pact, Patrisse will develop and produce original programming across all platforms, including broadcast, cable and streaming.
The programming will include scripted and unscripted series, longform series, animated and kids programming, as well as digital content.
In a statement Patrisse Cullors said:
Black voices, especially Black voices who have been historically marginalized, are important and integral to today’s storytelling. Our perspective and amplification is necessary and vital to helping shape a new narrative for our families and communities. I am committed to uplifting these stories in my new creative role with the Warner Bros. family.
As a long time community organizer and social justice activist, I believe that my work behind the camera will be an extension of the work I’ve been doing for the last twenty years. I look forward to amplifying the talent and voices of other Black creatives through my work.
