With a good year behind them, Netflix keeps ramping it up with releases and one of their next is WHEN THEY SEE US, airing May 31st. Based on a true story that gripped the country, the series directed and co-written by Ava DuVernay WHEN THEY SEE US will chronicle the notorious case of five teenagers of color labeled the Central Park Five, who were convicted of a rape they did not commit.
The four-part limited series will focus on the five teenagers from Harlem -- Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, and Korey Wise. Beginning in the spring of 1989, when the teenagers were first questioned about the incident, the series will span 25 years, highlighting their exoneration in 2002 and the settlement reached with the city of New York in 2014.
WHEN THEY SEE US looks to be a stirring story that will leave people talking for a while.
