Regina King will take on a new role in the film industry. This time, she’ll be producing and directing Netflix’s upcoming series A Man In Full. The esteemed actress will work alongside David E. Kelley. The series takes inspiration from Tom Wolfe’s novel, which carries the same name.
King agreed to partner with Netflix two years ago, having leverage to produce several movies. A Man In Full will be produced under this deal and her production company, Royal Ties. The movie’s synopsis says, “When Atlanta real estate mogul Charlie Croker faces sudden bankruptcy, political and business interests collide as Charlie defends his empire from those attempting to capitalize on his fall from grace.”
The series will comprise six hour-long episodes.
