Grier, who is up for a Tony for his role in A Soldier's Play, will also serve as executive producer of what will be titled A Soldier's Story. "The series adaptation, spanning multiple wars and several decades, will center on Sgt. Vernon Waters and the emotional impact he is subjected to as a soldier in the 1940s," per Deadline. "Grier, who plays Sgt. Waters in the play, will play the character’s father in the limited series. The Pulitzer-winning A Soldier’s Play, written by Charles Fuller, is set at a Black army base in the segregated Louisiana of 1944."
