[via press release from EPIX] ACADEMY AWARD(R) WINNER JOHN RIDLEY JOINS EPIX(R) SERIES "GODFATHER OF HARLEM" PRODUCED BY ABC SIGNATURE STUDIOS
New York, NY - June 19, 2018 - Multi-award winning writer-director John Ridley (American Crime) has signed on to direct the first episode of the EPIX(R) original series, Godfather of Harlem, created by Chris Brancato and Paul Eckstein, starring and executive produced by Oscar(R) winner Forest Whitaker.
Produced by ABC Signature Studios, the 10-episode series tells the story of infamous crime boss Bumpy Johnson (Whitaker), who in the early 1960s, returned from ten years in prison to find the neighborhood he used to rule in shambles and his power gone. With the streets controlled by the Italian mob, Bumpy has to take on the Five Families to regain control. In order to do so, he enlists the help of radical preacher Malcolm X - catching Malcolm's political rise in the crosshairs of social and political upheaval. Production will begin later this year with an eye towards a 2019 premiere on EPIX.
Said Michael Wright, President, EPIX, "John Ridley's incredible body of work speaks for itself, and we're beyond thrilled to be collaborating with such a brilliant talent to bring this first-rate story to life."
"John is a great writer/director whose work covers many historical periods, but always with a thoroughly modern sensibility," said Chris Brancato, executive producer/showrunner. "We're privileged to have him join the team."
John Ridley's critically acclaimed documentary about the Los Angeles uprising, Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992, premiered in theaters and aired on ABC in 2017 and is currently available on Netflix. He is currently directing the sci-fi romance Needle in a Timestack with Leslie Odom Jr., Freida Pinto, Cynthia Erivo, and Orlando Bloom and is slated to direct an adaptation of his graphic novel series "The American Way" for Blumhouse. Ridley previously won an Oscar(R) for writing 12 Years A Slave, he wrote and directed the innovative Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side, and was the creator, director, and executive producer of ABC's Emmy-winning series "American Crime." His limited series "Guerilla," with Idris Elba, Freida Pinto, and Babou Ceesay, aired last year on Showtime and Sky.
Ridley is represented by Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Rohner Walerstein.
Godfather Of Harlem is executive produced by Forest Whitaker and Nina Yang Bongiovi along with Paul Eckstein, James Acheson and Markuann Smith. Chris Brancato will serve as showrunner.

History Presents "Detroit: Comeback City," An Original Documentary Special to Premiere July 1 Narrated by Academy Award(R)-winner and Detroit native J.K. Simmons, the film chronicles how Detroit went from the engine of American capitalism to a city of ruins that is now on the cusp of an exciting rebirth.
[via press release from History] HISTORY(R) PRESENTS AN ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY SPECIAL "DETROIT: COMEBACK CITY" CHARTING THE RISE, FALL AND RISE AGAIN OF DETROIT AND MICHIGAN CENTRAL STATION PREMIERES SUNDAY, JULY 1 AT 9PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY - June 19, 2018 - HISTORY(R) presents an original documentary special, "Detroit: Comeback City," which recounts the saga of the rise, fall and rebirth of Detroit through the iconic Michigan Central Station. The special premieres Sunday, July 1 at 9pm ET/PT.
Narrated by Academy Award(R)-winner and Detroit native JK Simmons, the film chronicles how Detroit went from the engine of American capitalism to a city of ruins that is now on the cusp of an exciting rebirth. The story of the city is told by real Detroiters who recount the stories of their relatives who helped build the city and the country. Among the interview subjects are Alice Cooper, Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., Pulitzer Prize-winner Dr. Heather Ann Thompson, Bill Ford and NASA Astronaut Jerry Linenger.
From Henry Ford's automated assembly lines that turned Detroit into a wheelhouse of innovation to the factories that made the city WW2's arsenal of democracy, we will hear from those who found freedom and prosperity in the Motor City, including those who fled racism in the South to build a new life, and those who lived through the city's 1967 riots and the city's eventual downturn - leading to Detroit's painful filing for bankruptcy in 2013.
The anchor of the story is the iconic Michigan Central Station (MCS). Designed by Warren & Wetmore and Reed and Stem, the firms that designed New York City's Grand Central Terminal, MCS was built in the early 20th Century to announce Detroit's dream for the future. The station was an emblem of Detroit's innovative power, but after six decades it was shut down and abandoned, a painful symbol of the city's demise.
Ford Motor Company has purchased Michigan Central Station, and recently announced plans to transform the building into an innovation hub.
"Part of History's mission is to not just tell stories of the past, but capture history as it unfolds," said Eli Lehrer, Executive Vice President of Programming, HISTORY. "Working together with organizations like Ford Motor Company, we are able to breathe new life into the past by working together to save our most precious landmarks for future generations."
"Detroit: Comeback City" is produced by Nutopia and Spoke Entertainment. Jane Root is Executive Producers for Nutopia. Brent Montgomery is Executive Producer for Spoke Studios. David Tackel, Mark Truby and Big Sean also serve as Executive Producers. Eli Lehrer and Kristen Burns are Executive Producers for HISTORY.
HISTORY(R), now reaching more than 96 million homes, is the leading destination for award-winning series and specials that connect viewers with history in an informative, immersive and entertaining manner across all platforms. The network's all-original programming slate features a roster of signature series including The Curse of Oak Island, Forged in Fire, Alone, Pawn Stars, American Pickers, as well as the hit drama series Vikings and SIX.
