ABC’s new ‘Women of the Movement’ about Emmett Till’s mother

<p>NEW YORK &mdash; ABC will air a short-run series “Women of the Movement” next season about Mamie Till-Mobley, whose son Emmett Till became a symbol of the civil rights movement after he was lynched in Mississippi in 1955.</p>
<p>The network, which announced its plans for the next television season on Tuesday, is also reviving “The Wonder Years," this time with a Black cast that will feature Don Cheadle as the adult narrator.</p>
<p>ABC said its popular comedy “black-ish” will conclude its run next year after eight seasons. It will return in midseason so the final episodes can run straight through.</p>
<p>Till-Mobley made sure Americans didn’t forget about her son, a Chicago resident killed while visiting relatives in the South, and memorably insisted upon an open casket to display his broken body. Actor Will Smith and rapper Jay-Z are on the production team working on the midseason series.</p>
<p>Fred Savage, who starred in “The Wonder Years” when it ran originally on ABC from 1988 to 1993, directed the pilot episode of the new version and is a producer of the series. </p>
<p>It is one of two new series debuting on ABC in the fall. “Queens” features musicians Eve and Brandy in a series about four women from a 1990s-era hip-hop group who reunite in their 40s to try to recapture some of their glory years,</p>
<p>The network’s other new series are “Abbott Elementary,” a workplace comedy set in a Philadelphia public school, and “Maggie,” about a woman psychic.</p>
