Apple TV+ has recently released an intriguing trailer for their next limited drama series, “The Big Cigar,” which promises to capture spectators with its captivating story. The series, which will air globally on May 17, provides a firsthand account of Black Panther leader Huey P. Newton’s dramatic escape to Cuba. Based on Joshuah Bearman’s seminal magazine piece of the same name, whose prior work includes the celebrated “Argo,” “The Big Cigar” promises to be a riveting blend of Hollywood intrigue and social change.

The series, directed and executive produced by the famous Don Cheadle, promises to be an exciting ride from beginning to conclusion. Cheadle brings his enormous talent to the table, guaranteeing that viewers have a memorable experience. The first two episodes, directed by Cheadle himself, will premiere on May 17, with the following episodes running every Friday until June 14.

At the center of “The Big Cigar” is a thrilling adventure that transcends imagination. The series recounts Huey Newton and legendary producer Bert Schneider’s ambitious effort to elude the FBI and seek shelter in Cuba. Their plan, which involves a phony movie production, develops in a series of twists and turns, demonstrating the depths to which people will go in the pursuit of liberty and justice. As the plot progresses, viewers will be taken on a thrilling ride filled with suspense, drama, and surprising revelations.

André Holland leads the superb ensemble cast, and his imposing presence on screen is guaranteed to give the series gravity. Alessandro Nivola, Tiffany Boone, PJ Byrne, Marc Menchaca, Moses Ingram, Rebecca Dalton, Olli Haaskivi, Jordane Christie, and Glynn Turman join him, each bringing their special talent to the table and ensuring that “The Big Cigar” is an ensemble piece deserving of accolades.

Behind the scenes, NAACP Image Award winner Janine Sherman Barrois, recognized for her work on “Claws” and “The Kings of Napa,” acts as showrunner, bringing her experience to the forefront. The series’ opening episode is written by Jim Hecht, the creator behind “Winning Time,” laying a solid framework for the story to emerge. With Warner Bros. Television and Barrois’ Folding Chair Productions supporting the project, “The Big Cigar” is primed to have a huge impact on the television landscape.
