The 7-part drama is told from the point of view of a fictional enslaved boy who becomes a member of controversial abolitionist John Brown’s motley family of soldiers during Bleeding Kansas and eventually finds himself participating in the famous 1859 raid on the U.S. Armory at Harpers Ferry. Billy Gottlieb serves as the project’s music supervisor. Hawke and McBride are also executive producing the Blumhouse Television production with Jason Blum (Get Out, Halloween), Ryan Hawke (Blaze), Mark Richard (Hell on Wheels), Padraic McKinley (The Loudest Voice), Jeremy Gold & Marci Wiseman (Sharp Objects), Albert Hughes (Menace II Society, The Book of Eli), Brian Taylor, Marshall Persinger (Rectify) and David Schiff. Hollister has previously scored several TV shows and movies, including the Viola Davis-produced ABC digital series American Koko. He is also known for his work as a multi-instrumentalist/music producer and has performed pedal steel, fiddle, mandolin, dobro and guitar on American Idol, The Voice and other shows and performed, recorded and toured with artists including Dwight Yoakam, Dolly Parton, John Fogerty and Blake Shelton. The Good Lord Bird will premiere on October 4, 2020 and will air every Sunday night on Showtime. Visit the official show website for updates.

    At a time in America when morale is at a rock bottom fueled by racial injustices etc., now is the time for Original Content films that inspires, changes hearts and minds and unites, reinforces love and forgiveness, restores faith, hope, and dignity – while it gives investors… a pang for their bucks!
