Ava DuVernay’s WHEN THEY SEE US Gets Teaser Trailer & Premiere Date


Ava DuVernay’s limited series formerly titled “Central Park 5” and now titled When They See Us has a new teaser trailer and a premiere date on Netflix.

DuVernay released a statement regarding the limited series and the name change:

“In 1989, five black and brown teen boys were wrongly accused of a crime they did not commit and branded The Central Park Five, a moniker that has followed them since that time. In 2019, our series gives the five men a platform to finally raise their voices and tell their full stories.”

“In doing so, Korey, Antron, Raymond, Kevin and Yusef also tell the story of many young people of color unjustly ensnared in the criminal justice system. We wanted to reflect this perspective in our title, embracing the humanity of the men and not their politicized moniker.”

Here’s the teaser posted by DuVernay on her twitter.

When They See Us premieres globally on Netflix on May 31st 2019.
