As part of his deal with Lionsgate TV, Common is helping develop the author's found book Baracoon into a limited series. The book, a nonfiction tome about the last known survivor of the middle passage, sat as a manuscript at Howard University for 50 years before being published this past May. "It's official! I'm so excited for this project," Com tweeted about the project. "Zora Neale Hurston is a national treasure and I'm grateful to develop one of her stories into a show!" #BlackHistoryInTheMaking
