          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.

 

          Inspired by the Time Magazine cover story, "The Toxic Tap," by Josh Sanburn, Flint is also executive produced by Academy Award® and Emmy® nominated team Craig Zadan and Neil Meron for Sony Pictures Television, Emmy® Award-winning journalist Katie Couric and Shakim Compere from Flavor Unit Entertainment. Academy Award® nominee Bruce Beresford directs from a script by Barbara Stepansky.
