Black Bird Series Premiere Friday July 8 on Apple TV+

The true crime memoir “In with the Devil: A Fallen Hero, a Serial Killer, and a Dangerous Bargain for Redemption” by James Keene and Hillel Levin served as the inspiration for the television series.

When Taron Egerton’s character, Jimmy Keene, a decorated policeman’s son and high school football star, is sentenced to 10 years in a minimum security facility, he is given the chance of a lifetime: either transfer to a maximum-security facility for the criminally insane and make friends with alleged serial killer Larry Hall (Paul Walter Hauser), or remain in his current location and complete his sentence without the possibility of parole.

Keene quickly realizes his only way out is to elicit a confession and find out where the bodies of several young girls are buried before Hall’s appeal goes through. But is this suspected killer telling the truth? Or is it just another tale from a serial liar?

This dramatic and captivating story subverts the crime genre by enlisting the help of the very people put behind bars to solve its mysteries. In addition to Egerton and Hauser, “Black Bird” stars Sepideh Moafi, Greg Kinnear and Ray Liotta.

Cast: Taron Egerton (James ‘Jimmy’ Keene), Paul Walter Hauser (Larry Hall), Ray Liotta (James ‘Big Jim’ Keene), Greg Kinnear (Brian Miller), Sepideh Moafi (Lauren McCauley)

Airdate: Friday July 8, 2022 on Apple TV+.
