Published in 2016 by Little, Brown & Company, the book examines how decades of racially biased policing in segregated neighborhoods has led to police brutality.

Lowrey was a lead on the publication's 2016 Post's Pulitzer Prize-winning "Fatal Force" project. It is a that tracked 990 police shootings in 2015.

The upcoming series hails from Brad Weston's Makeready and writer LaToya Morgan ("Into the Badlands", "Turn: Washington's Spies"), who will executive produce with Weston and Pam Abdy and Scott Nemes.

The potential series will reflect current events and race relations through the stories and voices of fictional characters.
