Amazon Studios is developing a TV series adaptation of the 2018 sci-fi superhero feature “Fast Color”.
The film followed three generations of black women, Ruth (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), her mom Bo (Lorraine Toussaint) and Ruth’s daughter Lila (Saniyya Sidney), at the center of an original science fiction world. The title came to disc two weeks ago.
The television series will follow Ruth, a former drug addict and runaway, who returns home and rediscovers the special powers she thought she lost, powers that her family have long kept hidden from the public.
Three Generations of black women reconnect and as they learn more about themselves and the generations who came before, they begin to realize that one of them could save the world.
Viola Davis and Julius Tennon’s JuVee Productions are producing, along with feature’s writers Julia Hart and Jordan Horowitz as well as Mickey Liddell’s LD Entertainment. Hart & Horowitz will write the pilot and Hart will direct.
