BIG NEWS

Stop everything. There’s a scripted Malcolm X series in the works, and The Hollywood Reporter  says Boardwalk Empire writer David Matthews may be scripting the pilot. Critical Content, an independent studio, nabbed rights to Manning Marable’s Pulitzer Price-winning biography Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention. And while the show doesn’t have a home network yet, we bet it’s gonna be good—regardless of where it lands.

BIG LIES

As Trump prepares to move forward with his transgender military ban, word has it that he may also be considering an end to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)—the policy put forth by former president Barack Obama, which protects illegal immigrants from deportation. According to Axios, sources say while Trump’s yet to make a final decision (the White House is still in talks with the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice), Jeff Sessions is reportedly all for the idea. “At least 750,000 people currently have DACA status,” Axios reports. So if this ends up being green-lighted, tons of folks will be affected.

BIG FACTS

Kordale Lewis and Kaleb Anthony, who went viral in 2014 after sharing an adorable photo of them doing their daughter’s hair, just became models for Acne Studios’ Fall/Winter 2017 campaign. “The Acne campaign came about in simple divine intervention,” Lewis and Anthony told  Mic. “Acne hired a scout who reached out to us once the creative director showed interest and his thought of what a modern family is today. When she reached out, we quickly obliged and history was made.” Oh—and their kids are a part of the campaign, too, making them the first-ever Black LGBT family to represent a fashion campaign. HYFR!
