Based on a true story, MISS VIRGINIA stars Emmy® winner Uzo Aduba as a struggling single mother who is losing her fifteen-year-old son to the rough streets of Washington, DC. Unwilling to see him drop out and deal drugs, she places him in a private school. But when she can’t afford tuition, she launches a movement to change the system that is destroying him and thousands like him. Attacked and threatened by those who don’t want change—from corrupt politicians to the local drug lord—Virginia must discover depths of strength she never knew she had.

Emmy® nominee Vanessa Williams (SOUL FOOD, MY BROTHER), Emmy® nominee Aunjanue Ellis (WHEN THEY SEE US), Amirah Vann (UNDERGROUND), Emmy® nominee Adina Porter (AMERICAN HORROR STORY), Niles Fitch (THIS IS US), Nadji Jeter (WONDER), and Golden Globe nominee Matthew Modine (STRANGER THINGS, FULL METAL JACKET) round out MISS VIRGINIA’s stellar cast.
