ABC 2017 Series: When We Rise (Trailer Song)
ABC has released the official trailer for its upcoming drama series When We Rise, inspired by the stories of real families in the LGBT civil rights movement.
The seven-part docudrama series written by Dustin Lance Black, partially inspired by LGBT activist Cleve Jones’s memoir “When We Rise: My Life in the Movement”, chronicles the epic struggles of families in the United States, both personal and political, beginning with the Stonewall riots in 1969. When We Rise tells also a story of infinite hope.
When We Rise, starring Guy Pearce, Whoopi Goldberg, Mary-Louise Parker, Carrie Preston, Rachel Griffiths, Michael K. Williams, Kevin McHale, Rafael de la Fuente, Fiona Dourif, and Rosie O’Donnell, is scheduled to premiere on February 27.
The song used in the trailer is “Rise Up” by Andra Day.
