Filming has begun on Ava DuVernay’s Central Park crime drama, The Central Park Five, which is shooting in New York. The limited series, with four episodes, will stream on Netflix in 2019. It will focus on the five teens from Harlem--Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise. The series will span from the spring of 1989, when each was first questioned about the incident, to 2014, when they were exonerated and a settlement was reached with the city of New York. Chris Chalk will play an adult Yusef Salaam and Ethan Herisse the young Salaam. Justin Cunningham plays adult Kevin Richardson and Asante Blackk the teen version.
