Dustin Lance Black's Gay Rights Mini-Series 'When We Rise' Ordered By ABC!

Milk duo Dustin Lance Black and Gus Van Sant will be re-teaming for the eight hour mini series When We Rise, which has officially been given the go-ahead at ABC!

The 41-year-old writer, who worked with Gus on the 2008 film Milk, will pen the series about “the personal and political struggles, setbacks and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBT men and women who helped pioneer one of the last legs of the U.S. Civil Rights movement from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today,” via The Wrap.

Gus will direct the first two episodes and will serve as executive producer.
