Regina King is an amazing actress. Which means she can pull of just about any role, and truly we love her for it!

The woman is a star through and through. Which is why when it comes to tackling some pretty heavy subject like the Atlanta Child Murders of the seventies and eighties, and we will definitely be tuning in.

The series is adapted from Kim Reid’s memoir, No Place Safe  and is already generating a lot of buzz.

The Atlanta child murders occurred in Atlanta, GA from mid-1979 until May 1980. During that period, at least 28 African American children, adolescents and young adults – mainly boys- were killed. Atlanta native Wayne Williams was arrested and convicted of two of the adult murders and sentenced to two consecutive life terms. Police since have attributed a number of the child murders to Williams and closed the cases, although he has not been tried or convicted in any of those cases. No Place Safe tells the story of the hunt for the killer through the eyes of then-13-years-old Reid whose mother was an investigator on the case.

This series is definitely going to be groundbreaking. As a native of Atlanta I grew up hearing stories of the child murders, but I do not recall there ever being a series that delved into them. I have also read a little of No Place Safe and if the series is anything like the book then it will undoubtedly be riveting and captivating. Regina is no stranger to tough material though, as you may already know she has received numerous awards for her roles on ABC’s American Crime, which is now in its third season.

What do you all think about the new series? Will you be tuning in? Sound off below in our comments’ section!
