On Wednesday Netflix released a trailer for a new documentary series starring Will Smith. The new series will be six parts, focusing on the fourteenth amendment. Throughout the trailer, Smith begs the question “Who is America?”.
Featuring a range of experts and historians – the documentary focuses on the promise of equality within the constitution. It appears the new series will have a solid blend of historical context from the amendment’s writing as well as a range of current events. Clips featuring Black Lives Matter protests and other social movements were featured throughout the trailer.
Entitled Amend: The Fight For America, the series will release to Netflix February 17th. The release comes amidst an unusually busy February release schedule. With theaters closed across the country, many of last year’s postponed movies have been pushed to releases across streaming services. Next month, Godzilla vs. Kong comes to HBO Max.
