ABC is developing the series with Black according to The Hollywood Reporterwhich exclusively writes:

The network is teaming with Dustin Lance Black to develop an eight-hour scripted miniseries about the gay rights movement, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Black, who won an Oscar for penning the screenplay to the Harvey Milk biopic Milk, will write the series for ABC Studios. Laurence Mark (Jerry Maguire) will executive produce the untitled project, which is in development, alongside Black. The drama will be based on and told from Black's background and experiences as a gay rights activist.

The writer-producer, 39, was raised in a strict Mormon house in Texas and has worked tirelessly for marriage equality and gay rights as his career in Hollywood continued to rise.
