Trailer: André Holland leads Apple’s new limited series, ‘The Big Cigar’

Apple TV+ has released the full trailer for The Big Cigar, a new, six-episode series led by André Holland who stars as Black Panther founder Huey P. Newton. It is due on the streaming service in May.

Alessandro Nivola, Tiffany Boone, PJ Byrne, Marc Menchaca, Moses Ingram, Rebecca Dalton, Olli Haaskivi, Jordane Christie, and Glynn Turman are also among the cast.

Based on the magazine article by Joshuah Bearman (Argo), who will also serve as executive producer, The Big Cigar is the incredible true story of Hollywood revolution meeting social revolution: it’s a wild caper of Black Panther founder Huey P. Newton escaping from the FBI to Cuba with the assistance of famed producer Bert Schneider in an impossibly elaborate plan — involving a fake movie production — that goes wrong every way it possibly can. And somehow, it’s all true. Mostly.

The first two episodes land on 17th May, followed by new episodes every Friday through until 14th June.

Here’s the trailer.
