Based off Wesley Lowery's best-selling book, They Can't Kill Us All

AMC is developing a drama series about the creation of the Black Lives Matter movement, based off the best-selling book by Pulitzer winner Wesley Lowery, They Can't Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore, and a New Era in America's Racial Justice.

The show will use the nonfiction novel as a jumping off point, but, Deadlinereports, the characters and narratives in the series will be fictional.

They Can't Kill Us All examines police brutality in segregated neighborhoods that has led to the high-profile murders of Michael Brown, Tamir Rice and Freddie Gray, and the subsequent fight for justice that birthed Black Lives Matter. The TV adaptation will be written by LaToya Morgan (Into the Badlands, Turn: Washington's Spies).

The show is being produced by Makeready, which has an impressive roster of upcoming projects, including work from producers like Leonardo DiCaprio and Chloe Grace Moretz.
