Chadwick Boseman Had a New Project Announced Just 10 Days Before His Death

Just days before his tragic passing, it was announced that Chadwick Boseman would be teaming up with Seth MacFarlane for a new project.

The new limited series is called Little Rock Nine, and based on the book “A Mighty Long Way: My Journey to Justice at Little Rock Central High” by Carlotta Walls LaNier, who was the youngest of the group who made history as the first African-American woman to graduate from the school.

Little Rock Nine will concentrate on the group of nine African-American schoolgirls who enrolled at the all-white Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas following the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court ruling, which declared segregation unconstitutional in 1954.

Chadwick would’ve executive produced the scripted series, with Seth.

It was announced just hours ago that the Black Panther star passed away from colon cancer after a four year battle.
