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.

“When I was young, my dad always let me listen to comedy albums. I always knew about comedy, I always loved comedy,” the 48-year-old Ghostbusters star expressed. “The day that I saw Whoopi Goldberg on television, I cried so hard, because I kept looking at my daddy going, ‘Oh my god. there’s somebody on TV that looks like me! She looks like me! Yay! I can be on TV! I can be on TV! I can do it! Look at her look at her! she looks just like me.”

“I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Leslie added. “Because now I know what I’m doing that when I put on that Ghostbusters suit, and little girls see me on TV now, now they’re gonna go, I can do it. You gave that to me, and I love you…and I love you for what you’ve done for black women, I love you for what you’ve done for black comedians, and I love you.”

Whoopi Goldberg Reacts to Oprah Confusion at Oscars 2016

Whoopi Goldberg is opening up about her feelings on the website Total Beauty confusing her for Oprah Winfrey in their coverage of the 2016 Academy Awards.

The site posted a photo of Whoopi and captioned it, “We had no idea Oprah was tatted, and we love it.”

On Monday morning’s episode of The View, Whoopi revealed what she thought of the mistake.

“They could have used an orangutan and said an orangutan has a new tattoo. I feel pretty good if you’re comparing me to Oprah, saying I look like Oprah. That’s not a bad thing,” Whoopi said. “It could’ve been a lot worse.”

When co-host Michelle Collins mentioned that Total Beauty wants to donated $10,000 to the charity of her choice, Whoopi said, “They don’t need to do that. Just know it happens. People make mistakes all the time. We’ve done it on the show… It was an honest mistake. We both look good.”
