Jay Z, Will Smith Executive Producing Emmett Till HBO Miniseries
Jay Z and Will Smith will executive produce an upcoming HBO miniseries about Emmett Till, a teenager whose death in 1955 helped spark the civil rights movement. A writer is currently being sought for the project that is in "active development," Deadline reports, with the as-yet-untitled miniseries expected to run six hours.

Till was 14 years old when he was brutally murdered in Mississippi after allegedly flirting with a married white woman. The two men charged in Till's killing were later acquitted; they would eventually admit to slaying the teenager but avoided further prosecution.
