A Laura Dern and Issa Rae Project Is in the Works
Inspired by true events, The Dolls recounts the aftermath of Christmas Eve riots within two small Arkansas towns in 1983 — riots which erupted over, of all things, Cabbage Patch Dolls. The series will explore class, race, privilege and what it takes to be a "good mother."
In addition to their starring parts, both actors are also taking on behind-the-scenes roles as executive producers. Rae will also serve as a writer on the series. Additional executive producers are Jayme Lemons and Deniese Davis, and co-executive producers and writers Laura Kittrell and Amy Aniobi.
Check back for more details as they are announced.
