According to a release, Washington Black is a historical drama which will follow 11-year-old George Washington “Wash” Black, who runs from a Barbados sugar plantation after a traumatic incident.

Black becomes the protégé of Medwin Harris (Brown), who has traveled the world after a traumatic childhood as a Black refugee in Nova Scotia as the de facto Mayor of Black Halifax prioritizes the community over everything except Washington Black, his young protégé.

Meeting Wash sends him down a challenging path of self-discovery. And as the barricades around his heart start to fall, Medwin will learn to dream again.

“Washington Black inspires me…This young man and the adventure he undertakes remind me of how the power of imagination and the creativity of artistry can transform the world in which we live,” Sterling shared in a statement. “[Writer] Selwyn Seyfu Hinds has taken the transcendent words of Esi Edugyan and created a spectacular universe that brings to fruition the power of possibility.”

This isn’t the only project Sterling has lined up after the end of This Is Us. See what else he’s working on here…
