Warner Bros. TV signs overall deal with Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors

Warner Bros. Television Group has signed an exclusive multi-year overall deal with Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder and executive director Patrisse Cullors.

Under the terms of the partnership, author and political strategist Cullors will develop and produce original programming for all platforms, including streaming services, cable, and Warner’s five broadcast networks. Her output will include live-action scripted drama and comedy series, longform and event series, unscripted docuseries, animated programming and original digital content.

Cullors has spent the past 20 years campaigning for criminal justice reform and advocating for black lives, including founding the global BLM movement in 2013. Her partnership with the company will “amplify the work of the Black Lives Matter movement and will create further opportunities for prominent black storytelling.”

“Black voices, especially black voices who have been historically marginalised, are important and integral to today’s storytelling,” said Cullors. “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.”
