WATCH: Queen Latifa and Jill Scott Star in Lifetime’s Flint

Lifetime produced a TV movie about the Flint water crisis and it stars Jill Scott and Queen Latifah. According to their website, “Flint is the gripping retelling of a crisis that shook a nation and shines a light on the whistleblowers who exposed the biggest environmental scandal of our generation. LeeAnne Walters (Betsy Brandt, “Breaking Bad”), Melissa Mays (Marin Ireland, “Sneaky Pete”) and Nayyirah Shariff (Jill Scott, “Steel Magnolias”) join forces after discovering that the drinking water in Flint, Michigan is contaminated, resulting in a slew of devastating medical problems for their families. When their claims go unheeded, they band together to expose the wrongdoings committed by their reckless, bean-counting government officials whose carelessness caused irrevocable harm to the lives of its residents. Golden Globe®-winner, Academy Award® and Grammy®-nominee Queen Latifah (“Star”) also stars and executive produces.”
Flint first aired on October 28th and is available until November 28, 2017 on Lifetime using your cable provider as a login. As for Flint, Michigan… it is now November 2017 and they have not had clean water since April 2014.
