Crew Nine, an upcoming TV movie project starring Cuba Gooding Jr. as a youth counselor who inspires troubled kids, has gotten the greenlight, with Darnell Martin directing. The film will eventually air on ABC; though no word on when that will happen.
Full synopsis reads:
“Crew Nine” revolves around a counselor at a youth detention facility who trains kids to battle forest fires and assist the public during other natural disasters.
Production is scheduled to begin this month in Atlanta.
After winning the Oscar for his performance in Jerry Maguire in 1996 (15 long years ago), Cuba’s appeared in quite a lot of movies, though most of them have been “misses,” and a large chunk were not released in theaters. He’ll next be seen headlining the Anthony Hemingway’s Red Tails early next year.
As for Darnell Martin, she’s been staying busy directing TV shows.
