The six-episode series is created by Marissa Jo Cerar and based on Devery S. Anderson's Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked the World and Propelled the Civil Rights Movement. Warren will star as Mamie Till-Mobley, who spent her life seeking justice after the murder of her son, Emmett Till, in the Jim Crow-era South.

Warren received her second Tony nomination on October 15 for her work in Tina: The Tina Turner Musical. She was previously nominated for her performance in Broadway's Shuffle Along.

The Women of the Movement is expected to premiere in 2021.
