Gabrielle Union Is Turning LGBTQ+ Activist George M. Johnson's Memoir Into a TV Series!

Gabrielle Union has optioned the rights to turn LGBTQ+ activist and journalist George M. Johnson‘s memoir “All Boys Aren’t Blue” into a television series!

The series is being developed at Sony Pictures TV, where Gabrielle‘s production company I’ll Have Another Productions has a first-look deal, according to Deadline.

The book explores Johnson‘s “childhood and adolescence growing up in Plainfield, NJ as well as his college years attending an HBCU in Virginia. From memories of getting his teeth kicked out by bullies at age five to his loving relationship with his grandmother whom he affectionately called ‘Nanny,’ to his first sexual experience, the young adult memoir showcases the life of growing up under the duality of being black and queer.”

Gabrielle credited her experience as the mother of a queer identifying daughter as one of the reasons for taking on this project.

“Queer black existence has been here forever yet rarely has that experience been shown in literature or film and television,” Gabrielle said in a statement. “Being a parent to a queer identifying daughter has given me the platform to make sure that these stories are being told in a truthful and authentic way and George’s memoir gives you the blueprint for that and more. What I love about this book is that it not only offers a space for queer kids of color to be seen and heard but it also offers those who see themselves outside of that standpoint to be held accountable and help them better understand what it takes to truly have acceptance with someone who is considered other.”

George said about working with Gabrielle, “She’s someone who is not only a champion in the fight for supporting marginalized communities of color but the work she’s doing as a storyteller and producer is lifting every voice who hasn’t had the opportunity to be heard.”

You can order the memoir now on Amazon.

Gabrielle Union & Jessica Alba's 'L.A.'s Finest' Season 2 Release Delayed at Last Minute

L.A.’s Finest, the television show starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, was supposed to premiere three new episodes today on Spectrum’s On Demand service. However, those episode releases have now been delayed.

The news of the delay of the police show – which is an offshoot of Bad Boys – has been pushed to a “later date in 2020,” TV Line reports.

This change comes as protests are happening across America and the world against police brutality and for Black Lives Matter after the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless others.

Neither Jessica nor Gabrielle have spoken about the move just yet. Meanwhile, if you haven’t seen season one of the show and don’t have access to Spectrum On Demand…you’re in luck!

NBC Denies That Gabrielle Union Was Threatened By Exec Paul Telegdy

Gabrielle Union filed a discrimination complaint against America’s Got Talent and the show’s producers, and now NBC has responded to the lawsuit.

The 47-year-old entertainer, who served as a judge on the show last year, accused NBC exec Paul Telegdy of threatening her for speaking out against racism on set.

“The allegation that anyone involved in this process threatened Ms. Union is categorically untrue,” NBC said in a statement (via Deadline).

“We took Ms. Union‘s concerns seriously, and engaged an outside investigator who found an overarching culture of diversity on the show,” the network added. “NBCUniversal remains committed to creating an inclusive and supportive working environment where people of all backgrounds are treated with respect.”

Gabrielle‘s husband, basketball player Dwyane Wade, has released a statement in support of his wife.

“Y’all have deemed her a liar after months of trying to inform y’all of the issues in the work place and also make sure other employees of color that comes after her won’t have the same experiences. Instead of looking thru the lens of someone who has been an advocate for the black and brown community, for women and for rape victims,” he wrote.

“So instead of making sure your work environment is a a better place for everyone. Y’all have decided that she what? Made it all up because she lost a job? She’s a black women in Hollywood she has lost out on many jobs.”

“When these negotiations started my house started being watched and my family started being followed. My daughter couldn’t even go to swim class without us being trailed by people looking for answers. Well y’all have the answers and y’all still don’t wanna listen to them,” he revealed.

Gabrielle Union Files a Discrimination Complaint Against 'America's Got Talent' Producers

Gabrielle Union is filing a harassment complaint.

Following reports last year that America’s Got Talent fostered a toxic workplace environment that reportedly caused Gabrielle to complain, the 47-year-old actress filed a complaint in the state of California against the producers and network, as well as accusing NBC’s Paul Telegdy of threatening her for speaking out against racism on set, according to Variety on Thursday (June 4).

“When Gabrielle Union informed NBC of racially offensive conduct during the taping of America’s Got Talent, NBC did not ‘stand’ with her in ‘outrage at acts of racism. Instead, NBC did not care enough to either promptly investigate Ms. Union’s complaints or even ask HR to get involved. Rather, NBC stood against her and directed its ‘outrage’ at Ms. Union for whistleblowing about the racially offensive conduct she experienced while working for NBC on America’s Got Talent,” the complaint, filed through lawyer Bryan Freedman, reads.

“In sharp contrast to NBC’s recent statement on race, what was truly an ‘outrage’ was the fact that Paul Telegdy, Chairman of NBC Entertainment, actually threatened Ms. Union in an attempt to silence her from telling the truth about racist actions that took place on the show. There is no place for this type of racial bullying in the workplace, and it is going to take more than a Tweet from NBC to demonstrate that NBC intends to create an environment free from racism.”

Gabrielle Union Breaks Silence on What Really Happened at 'America's Got Talent'

Gabrielle Union is breaking her silence on what went down during her sole season as a judge on America’s Got Talent. She was let go after a series of alleged incidents which included racially charged moments and lodging complaints about cigarette smoke that was making her ill.

“At the end of all this, my goal is real change — and not just on this show but for the larger parent company. It starts from the top down,” Gabrielle told Variety. “My goal is to create the happiest, most high-functioning, inclusive, protected and healthy example of a workplace.”

She added that her decision to complain about Simon Cowell’s cigarette smoking on her first day was a dire one for an individual “coming onto a set and you are literally met with the very definition of a toxic work environment, and it’s being carried out by the most powerful person on the production.”

She said, “I couldn’t escape. I ended up staying sick for two months straight. It was a cold that lingered, and turned into bronchitis, because I couldn’t shake it. It impacted my voice, which affects my ability to do my job.”

“It was challenging to tend to my illness without being made to feel like I’m responsible for my own sickness. It put me in a position from day one where I felt othered. I felt isolated. I felt singled out as being difficult, when I’m asking for basic laws to be followed. I want to come to work and be healthy and safe and listened to,” she continued.
