CENTRAL PARK FIVE NETFLIX CASTING IS UNDERWAY
Director Ava DuVernay is now casting for the Netflix series based on the Central Park Five case. She posted the following via Twitter:
The casting call comes two days after the 29th anniversary of the tragic incident, which DuVernay spoke about on Twitter. "On this day in 1989, Trisha Meili was beaten and raped in Central Park. Five black and brown boys - Korey, Antron, Raymond, Kevin and Yusef - were arrested, tried, convicted + sentenced to prison. @RealDonaldTrump called for their death. They were innocent."
