Dustin Lance Black's 'When We Rise' Gets First Trailer from ABC

Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black has written every episode of the upcoming event series When We Rise for ABC and the first trailer has been released!

The seven-episode mini-series stars Guy Pearce, Mary-Louise Parker, Rachel Griffiths, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, and more. It is set to premiere in February.

When We Rise chronicles the personal and political struggles, set-backs 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. The period piece tells the history of the gay rights movement, starting with the Stonewall Riots in 1969.

Also in the cast are Carrie Preston, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jonathan Majors, and young Broadway talent Emily Skeggs and Austin McKenzie.

“After 3.5 years of hard work by so many dedicated souls, I’m thrilled to share the first trailer for #WhenWeRise,” Dustin wrote on Facebook.
