FIRST LOOKS

Netflix has released the first look at “When They See Us,” a limited series about the Central Park Five case, directed and co-written by Ava DuVernay. The four-part series will debut on May 31 and explore the 25-year story of the five black and brown boys accused of a rape they didn’t commit. The cast will include Michael K. Williams, Vera Farmiga, John Leguizamo, Felicity Huffman, Niecy Nash, Blair Underwood and Christopher Jackson.

DEVELOPMENT

MGM Television has made a deal with creative duo Will Scheffer and Mark Olsen, the helmers of HBO’s “Big Love” and “Getting On,” to adapt T.C. Boyle’s novel “The Tortilla Curtain” as a premium series. Published in 1995, the book takes a darkly comedic look at immigration through the lens of a liberal white couple and an undocumented Mexican couple involved in a hit-and-run accident.
