When We Rise


When We Rise Information

When We Rise is an upcoming American docudrama miniseries written by Dustin Lance Black.

When We Rise chronicles the personal and political struggles, set-backs and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBTQ people who helped pioneer an offshoot of the Civil Rights Movement from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today. The period piece tells the history of the modern gay rights movement, starting with the Stonewall riots in 1969.

The series will be eight hours long in seven parts with Gus Van Sant directing the first two-hour part with Dee Rees directing parts two and three, Thomas Schlamme parts four and five, and Black parts six and seven. The series is partially inspired by LGBT activist Cleve Jones's memoir When We Rise: My Life in the Movement. Van Sant and Black previously collaborated on Milk, which likewise featured Jones as a major character.

The series will premiere on ABC on February 27, 2017 at 9 p.m. Originally scheduled to air nightly until March 2, the scheduling was later shifted to accommodate live coverage of the address to a joint session of Congress by President Donald Trump on February 28; the first episode remains scheduled to air on February 27, with the remaining three episodes airing from March 1 to March 3.

The first episode of the series received an advance preview screening at the Palm Springs Film Festival in January 2017.
