First Look: BET + ‘The Porter’

BET+ recently announced that it will be launching its new civil rights drama THE PORTER on May 5. Set in the early 1920s and inspired by real events, THE PORTER follows train porters Junior Massey and Zeke Garrett and their friends and families as a tragedy on the job sets them on starkly different paths to better lives – and on a direct collision course with each other.

The Porter follows the journeys of characters who hustle, dream, cross borders and pursue their ambitions in the fight for liberation – on and off the railways that cross North America. It is a story of empowerment that highlights the moment when railway workers from both Canada and the United States join together to give birth to the world’s first Black union. Streaming May 5, only on BET+.
