TIME: The Kalief Browder Story

The first trailer for “TIME: The Kalief Browder Story” was released on Jay Z‘s official Facebook page on Thursday.

The six-part docuseries set to air on Spike TV on March 1, is about a young student who spent three years on Rikers Island without being convicted of a crime. Shortly after his release, Kalief took his own life.

TIME: The Kalief Browder Story” is the first project to come out of Jay Z’s 2-year overall deal with The Weinstein Company.

What’s even more heartbreaking is Kalief’s mother, Venida Browder, who is also featured in the docuseries, passed away in October from “a broken heart.”
