Warner Bros. Signs TV Deal with Kimberly Latrice Jones


Warner Bros. Television Group (WBTVG) has secured an overall deal with author, human rights activist and independent filmmaker Kimberly Latrice Jones.

Under terms of the partnership, Jones will collaborate with WBTVG to develop and produce original programming for all platforms, covering scripted dramas and comedies, unscripted series, original digital content and more.

Jones is the co-author of I’m Not Dying With You Tonight and is behind the How Can We Win video, which spoke to the anguish, fear and outrage felt by Black people in America following the killing of George Floyd. She subsequently signed a publishing deal with Henry Holt and Co. to write two new books, the first of which will continue the discussion she started in How Can We Win.

Jones commented: “Storytelling is an essential component in my journey. It’s a rich educational tool and I’m thrilled to have such an exciting new platform.”
