Summary
It's 1948, and Atlanta has eight African American police officers -- but the new cops have limited privileges (no driving a police car, no entering police headquarters, no policing white parts of town, etc.) and face hostility from their peers as well as distrust from their community. One night while walking their beat, rookies Lucius Boggs and Tommy Smith see a white man driving a car erratically with a young African American woman inside. When the woman is found dead, the men investigate, even though it could end their careers and maybe their lives. Blending history with mystery, this gritty 1st in a new series has already been optioned for TV, with Jamie Foxx set to produce. -- Description by Dawn Towery
