Lifetime’s Flint Starring Queen Latifah and Jill Scott Premieres Saturday, Oct 28
Premiering on Saturday, October 28 at 8pm, FLINT stars Queen Latifah, Jill Scott, Betsy Brandt, and Marin Ireland, and is inspired by the Time Magazine cover story, “The Toxic Tap,” by Josh Sanburn about the Flint Water Crisis – the story that made national headlines and how women exposed the biggest environmental scandal of our generation.
LeeAnne (Brandt), Melissa (Ireland,) and Nayyirah (Scott) join forces after discovering that the drinking water in Flint, Michigan is contaminated, resulting in a slew of devastating medical problems for their families. When their claims go unheeded, they band together to expose the wrongdoings committed by their reckless, bean-counting government officials whose carelessness caused irrevocable harm to the lives of its residents. Executive produced by Golden Globe®-winner, Academy Award® and Grammy®-nominee Queen Latifah, Katie Couric, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
