There’s been some major film and television news this week and trailer releases that have excited for what’s coming to our screens.

Coming to America 2 casting news made waves this week, with KiKi Layne, Wesley Snipes, Jermaine Fowler, and more set to join the comedy.

A new image of Uzo Aduba as Shirley Chisholm hit the internet. Aduba is set to play the first black woman elected to the United States Congress in the upcoming FX miniseries Mrs. America.

Matthew Cherry’s animated short Hair Love will be released with The Angry Birds Movie 2 after a viral Kickstarter campaign helped the project exceed its $75,000 goal. The short focuses on the relationship between a Black father and daughter and the task many dads dread—doing their daughter’s hair.

And Tomi Adeyemi’s bestselling fantasy novel Children of Blood and Bone is set to be adapted by Disney with Kay Oyegun writing the script.

Plus, Leslie Jones will headline a new hour-long stand-up special on Netflix, which will premiere next year.
