I lived in Nigeria for my entire childhood. When I came to the United States, my eyes were opened as to how unaware other countries were to the overwhelming economic and cultural challenges of Africa.  It was then I knew I was meant to dedicate my life to bringing a voice to those still in the shadows and to enlighten those totally unaware of the atrocities women and children in Africa endure.

The Stand

Coming from a 1978 novel, The Stand is an upcoming American Dark fantasy which features stars like James Marsden, Jovan Adepo, Whoopi Goldberg amongst others.

The series which will similarly focus on the current pandemic in the world, where thousands of people get infected by flu and with little survivors sees King's apocalyptic vision of a world decimated by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil.

Jovan Adepo who will play Larry Underwood has described the characters in the television miniseries as admirable and enthusiastic to work with in the build-up to this milestone.

Amber Heard who plays Nadine Cross has praised the 108 year old women who took matters into her hands as strong and courageous as she took survivors into her own space.
Amber will play the role of school teacher.

This adaptation of The Stand comes from show-runner and executive producer Benjamin Cavell with a few episodes directed by Josh Boone. This is the second television adaptation of King's 1978 post-apocalyptic fantasy novel. The first was a 1994 limited series starring Gary Sinise, Molly Ringwald, and Jamey Sheridan

The Stand Premiers on 17th December 2020.
