MICHAEL K. WILLIAMS DELIVERS THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED
NEW EPISODE OF
UNJUST JUSTICE: THE JIMMY ROSEMOND TAPES
New installment of The Jimmy Rosemond Tapes hits October 18, 2016
New York, NY, October 13, 2016 – Acclaimed actor Michael K. Williams (HBO’s The Wire, 12 Years A Slave, The Night Of) just announced the continuation of his role as executive producer for the project, Unjust Justice: The Jimmy Rosemond Tapes. The 8 episode documentary series directed by investigative filmmaker, Don Sikorski will be available on Youtube and the Gotoground (www.gotoground.com) websites.
Unjust Justice: The Jimmy Rosemond Tapes takes you inside the life story of James “Jimmy” Rosemond. The episodes offer exclusive access into his hard knock childhood, his climb to being a successful Hollywood executive and music mogul and his fall pushed by an overzealous NY prosecutor that lead to his conviction and subsequent 7 life sentences.
The first 2 episodes are currently available online with the third installment scheduled to be released on Tuesday, October 18th. In this chapter the viewer gets an in-depth look at how Rosemond honed his executive skills, rubbed elbows with the elite and proved he had the Midas touch. He garnered gold and platinum selling records, produced several movies and managed the careers of Heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, bringing him out of bankruptcy and to multi-millionaire status, and introduced the world to rap music star The Game.
Mr. Michael K. Williams feels compelled to share the Rosemond story and others that have been so unjustly accused, tried and convicted. “I have taken a stand for social justice. As the ambassador for the American Civil Liberty Union (ACLU) I must speak out against systemic injustice, mass incarceration and speak up for the wrongfully convicted. Everything that you wanted to know about the criminal justice system or what you thought you knew about it will be illuminated in this docuseries, good and bad. The Jimmy Rosemond Tapes is my first Unjust Justice case and I will follow up with a 5 – 10 part series on Derrick Hamilton who was sentence to life, but was exonerated after serving 21 years for murder. As Martin Luther King stated, ‘an injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere’. We forget that those who are wrongfully convicted become a victim of a system that is broken. People of color are most likely to be those victims in many circumstances. I sleep better at night knowing I’m doing something good and right.”
