Check out the trailer for "Flint," a new Lifetime original movie that dramatizes the water contamination crisis in Flint, Michigan, which is regarded as one of the biggest environmental scandals in recent history.

Told from the perspectives of four Michigan women -- played by Queen Latifah (who also serves as executive producer), Breaking Bad's Betsy Brandt, singer-actress Jill Scott, and Homeland's Marin Ireland -- who organize a campaign to expose the scandal, the cable movie is inspired by the Time Magazine cover story "The Toxic Tap" written by journalist Josh Sanburn.

Veteran director Bruce Beresford, whose helming credits include "Driving Miss Daisy," "Tender Mercies," and "Mr. Church," directs.

Co-starring Rob Morrow, "Flint" is set to premiere Saturday, October 28 on the Lifetime Channel.

synopsis:
"Flint" is the gripping retelling of a crisis that shook a nation and shines a light on the whistleblowers who exposed the biggest environmental scandal of our generation. LeeAnne Walters (Betsy Brandt), Melissa Mays (Marin Ireland) and Nayyirah Shariff (Jill Scott) join forces after discovering that the drinking water in Flint, Michigan is contaminated, resulting in a slew of devastating medical problems for their families. When their claims go unheeded, they band together to expose the wrongdoings committed by their reckless, bean-counting government officials whose carelessness caused irrevocable harm to the lives of its residents. Golden Globe-winner, Academy Award and Grammy-nominee Queen Latifah also stars and executive produces.
