Broadway Drama About Prejudice Becomes Project at HBO THR
A Broadway drama that tracks an African-American family's weekend at Martha's Vineyard is in development at HBO. The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that the pay-cable network has given a script commitment to "Stick Fly."
The project will be executive produced by Nelle Nugent and Alicia Keys, who produced and contributed original music to the show, the story adds. Playwright Lydia Diamond will write the adaptation and will also executive produce.
The Broadway production, which was about the secrets of prejudice and adultery, ran from November 2011 to February 2012 and starred Dule Hill of "Psych" and Mekhi Phifer of "ER."
