‘Mother of George’ Trailer Features ‘Walking Dead’ Star Danai Gurira

In “Mother of George,” Adenike and Ayodele (AMC’s  “The Walking Dead” star Danai Gurira and veteran actor Isaach De Bankolé) are a Nigerian couple living in Brooklyn. Following the joyous celebration of their wedding, complications arise out of their inability to conceive a child—a problem that devastates their family and defies cultural expectations, leading Adenike to make a shocking decision that could either save her family or destroy it.

Acclaimed director Andrew Dosumnu (“Restless City“) captures the nuances of this unique and fascinating culture by creating a beautiful, vibrant, and moving portrait of a couple whose joys and struggles are at-once intimate and universal.

Cast also includes Tony Okungbowa, Yaya Alafia, Bukky Ajayi, Angelique Kidjo. Written by Darci Picoult.
