Ava DuVernay is filling out the cast of her upcoming Netflix limited series Central Park Five.
Felicity Huffman, Jharrel Jerome and Jovan Adepo have boarded the four-episode narrative series, which will chronicle the notorious case of five teenagers of color who were convicted of a rape they did not commit. They join the previously cast stars Michael K. Williams, Vera Farmiga and John Leguizamo.
Central Park Five will focus on the five teenagers from Harlem — Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise — and will span from the spring of 1989, when each was first questioned about the incident, to 2014 when they were exonerated and a settlement was reached with the city of New York.
