There’s a new hero in town. A 9 year old girl from Harlerm is starring in a Sci-Fi/Drama Series ‘Little Apple’
Milan Williams will be starring in a Sci-Fi Drama Series called Little Apple, while having special powers and abilities.
The official description of the show states,
“Little Apple is a contemporary coming of age story about a young Harlem girl finding her voice in a society that often silences women and people of color. The first season features 6 episodes exploring themes of: gentrification, the erasure of Native Peoples, Black feminism, microaggressions, Black Girl Magic and more.”
The series is a product of a Kickstarter campaign, and was a finalist for the 2016 Sundance Institute YouTube New Voices Lab. The series is also a comic book, podcast and upcoming Summit that will be sponsored in part with Samsung.
Milan Williams in the series,
“goes from informing new tenants about gentrification to confronting her classmate about his white and male privilege. As if her wokeness is not enough, Apple must also grapple with new special abilities and supernatural enemies.”
The series is executively produced by Harlem residents Riley S. Wilson and Lisa Cortés. They are currently in multiple negotiations for distribution with potential partners.
