TV ONE TO PREMIERE THE ORIGINAL FILM, "BEHIND THE MOVEMENT," IN FEBRUARY 2018

The Story Behind the Rise of the Montgomery Bus Boycott With New Trailer Debuting Today

Starring Meta Golding, Loretta Devine, Isaiah Washington and Roger Guenveur Smith

SILVER SPRING, MD - December 1, 2017 - Rosa Parks' refusal to give up her bus seat 62 years ago was only the beginning. Premiering on TV One in February, Behind the Movement offers a closer look at how the history-making Montgomery Bus Boycott was planned in just three days and ultimately led to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s. A new trailer released today, provides a glimpse into Mrs. Parks' thoughts as she sat on the bus that December evening.

"It was reported that I was tired and that wasn't true," states Meta Golding as Rosa Parks in the trailer. "I was tired of all the injustice, all the fear and indignity that they were putting us through. That's the truth."

Starring Golding ("The Hunger Games") as Rosa Parks, Isaiah Washington ("The 100") as E.D. Nixon, Loretta Devine ("Waiting to Exhale") as Jo Ann Robinson, Roger Guenveur Smith ("American Gangster") as Raymond Parks and Shaun Clay as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Behind the Movement reveals the untold story of how a group of everyday people decided this incident was the right time to take a stand for their civil rights and demand equal treatment.

Premiering during Black History Month, this original made-for-television movie honors the contributions of many unsung heroes of this watershed moment in the Civil Rights struggle. The film recounts the inner workings and behind the scenes preparation that took place during three intense days between the fateful evening when Parks refused to give up her seat through the launch of this significant protest. While Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a prominent leader of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, there was a chorus of lesser-known heroes, including Rosa Parks, who galvanized the most successful boycott of its time.

Behind the Movement is written by Katrina M. O'Gilvie and directed by Aric Avelino. The film is produced for TV One by Eric Tomosunas, Keith Neal, James Seppelfrick and Darien Baldwin for Swirl Films. Casting is provided by Leah Daniels-Butler and George Pierre. For TV One, Karen Peterkin is Director of Scripted Original Programming and shares Executive in charge of production duties with Tia A. Smith, Sr. Director of Original Programming & Production. Donyell McCullough is Senior Director of Talent & Casting; Robyn Greene-Arrington is VP of Original Programming, and D'Angela Proctor is Head of Original Programming and Production.
