Directed by Jenner Furst and Executive-produced by Jay Z, he six-part Spike docuseries tells the real-life story of Kalief Browder, who was arrested in 2010 on false robbery charges at the age of 16. He was imprisoned for three years with no conviction at Rikers Island. Kalief was released in 2013, but committed suicide two years later.
The new series is part of Jay Z's recently inked movie and TV deal with the Weinstein Company. "We're the voice We're society. We affect change. We can change everything," Jay Z told Rolling Stone about the show. "Our voices are stronger than ever. If everyone in this room is like, 'I don't agree with this happening to a 16-year-old,' then it won't happen again. It's that simple."
The Kalief Browder Story will debut its first two episodes at next year's Sundance Film Festival. The 2017 festival in Park City, Utah kicks off Jan. 19 and runs through Jan. 29. The premiere will also include an extended Q&A, but no details have been announced as to the event. You can find more information about the screenings here.
