This show is going to have a hell of a story. Last fall Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery published his book called They Can’t Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore, and a New Era in America’s Racial Justice. The book centers around Lowery’s experience covering racial bias, police brutality and the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Now, according to Deadline, AMC is turning the book into a drama series. Deadline is reporting that both current events and the themes of the book will be explored “through the stories and voices of fictional characters,” rather than any specific real life persons.

This new comes after HBO announced the development of their alternative history drama, Confederatewhich explores the current world had slavery never been abolished.
