Synopsis: In the year 1941, the United States teeters on the brink of entering World War II. The country’s largest civil rights organization, the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) sends its only lawyer, thirty-two-year-old Thurgood Marshall (Boseman), to defend a black chauffeur (Brown) charged with rape and attempted murder by his socialite employer (Hudson). The trial quickly dominated headlines and became tabloid fodder. Marshall, in need of a win, engages the help of Samuel Friedman (Gad), a young Jewish lawyer with no trial experience. Marshall and Friedman struggle to expose the truth amidst the fear and prejudice, knowing that a young man’s life hangs in the balance. The trial set the groundwork for a career that would make Thurgood Marshall America’s first African-American Supreme Court Justice. MARSHALL is based upon a true story.

Executive producers are Lei Luo, Xu Yan, Chris Bongirne, Hunter Ryan, David Ryan, Tom Ortenberg, John Cappetta, Kevin Lamb, Lai Pan and Lili Sun.
