Women Of The Movement - Tonya Pinkins Replaces Niecy Nash

Tony winner Tonya Pinkins has been tapped to co-star opposite Adrienne Warren in ABC’s limited series Women of the Movement, from creator-writer Marissa Jo Cerar and a producing team that includes Jay-Z, Will Smith and Aaron Kaplan.

The six-episode limited series, set to premiere in 2021, centers on Mamie Till-Mobley (Warren), who devoted her life to seeking justice for her son Emmett Till. Pinkins will play Alma, Emmett Till’s grandmother. She replaces Niecy Nash, who was originally cast in the role but exited the project for personal reasons.
