Marissa Jo Cerar, creator, executive producer and showrunner of Women Of the Movement, has signed an overall deal with Kapital Entertainment, the studio behind the upcoming ABC limited series about Mamie Till Mobley, who devoted her life to seeking justice for her son Emmett Till following his brutal killing in the Jim Crow South.

Under the multi-year deal, Cerar will develop, write and produce projects through her company, Two Drifters, working with Kapital’s Kaplan, Dana Honor and Jessie Abbott. With a passion for socially conscious storytelling, Cerar will continue to focus her efforts on projects that explore the intersectionality of the human experience through character-driven, female forward stories across an array of genres and mediums.
