Based on a true story, MISS VIRGINIA stars Emmy® winner Uzo Aduba as a struggling single mother who is losing her fifteen-year-old son to the rough streets of Washington, DC. Unwilling to see him drop out and deal drugs, she places him in a private school. But when she can’t afford tuition, she launches a movement to change the system that is destroying him and thousands like him. Attacked and threatened by those who don’t want change—from corrupt politicians to the local drug lord—Virginia must discover depths of strength she never knew she had. Emmy® nominee Vanessa Williams (SOUL FOOD, MY BROTHER), Emmy® nominee Aunjanue Ellis (WHEN THEY SEE US), Amirah Vann (UNDERGROUND), Emmy® nominee Adina Porter (AMERICAN HORROR STORY), Niles Fitch (THIS IS US), Nadji Jeter (WONDER), and Golden Globe nominee Matthew Modine (STRANGER THINGS, FULL METAL JACKET) round out MISS VIRGINIA’s stellar cast.

“This Is Us” Star Niles Fitch is Disney’s First Live-Action Black Prince
Disney’s first Black live-action prince has finally arrived in the year 2020. Per Entertainment Weekly, actor Niles Fitch, who’s best known for his role as young Randall on This Is Us, will play a character named Prince Tuma in a new Disney+ movie, Secret Society of Second-Born Royals. Secret Society, which also stars Pitch Perfect’s Skylar Astin and Andi Mack alum Peyton Elizabeth Lee, is a sci-fi film about second-born royals who are gifted with special powers that help them protect the world.

Niles shared the exciting news on his Instagram, writing, “Welcome Disney’s first Black prince.” EW also released first-look photos of the entire cast, which you can check out below. The full cast includes Peyton Elizabeth Lee as Sam, Skylar Astin as James, Olivia Deeble as Roxana, Niles Fitch as Tuma, Faly Rakotohavana as Matteo, Isabella Blake Thomas as January, Elodie Yung as Queen Catherine, Ashley Liao as Eleanor, Noah Lomax as Mike, and Greg Bryk as Inmate 34.
