Black Lives Matter is not going away. And as more cases of police brutality are unveiled each day, Hollywood begins to take more notice.
Television was the first to address the ongoing movement calling for less police violence targeting African Americans, with episodes of Scandal, Black-ish, and Dear White People setting aside their sleek or comedic facades to candidly tackle the topic head-on. And now AMC is developing a prestige drama about the topic, based on Washington Post journalist Wesley Lowery’s nonfiction book They Can’t Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore, and a New Era in America’s Racial Justice.
