The group united with Serendipity Group Inc’s Rosanna Grace and Nicole Tabs, The Middleton Media Group’s John P. Middleton and Alex Foster, and Mazo Partners’ David Clark while at HBO. After leaving HBO, the project was reimagined to focus on women throughout the civil rights struggle. In April 2020, work on the series, now named Women of the Movement, began.
