Netflix crime drama “Seven Seconds” adds cast

PanARMENIAN.Net - Regina King has booked yet another starring role.

She’s joining the cast of Veena Sud’s “Seven Seconds”, a crime drama slated for a 10-episode run on Netflix, Variety reports.

In the drama, tensions run high between African-American citizens and Caucasian cops in Jersey City, where a teenage African-American boy is critically injured by a cop.

King plays Latrice Butler, a devout churchgoer and a proud wife and mother. After she moved out of the projects with her family and becomes a first-time home owner, she is shaken to her core when she learns that her 15-year-old son, Brenton, has been involved an incident. When she learns that there’s more to Brenton than she and her husband were aware of, Latrice is rocked by the power of her anger at her son’s predicament — an anger that will change her life, her relationship with her husband.

The Emmy-winning actress (“American Crime”) joins previously announced cast members David Lyons (“Game of Silence”), Michael Mosley (“Sirens”) and Patrick Murney (“Public Morals”).

King is already slated to return for the third season of ABC’s “American Crime” as well as HBO’s “The Leftovers.” She’s also spent time behind the camera as well, directing “Scandal,” “The Catch” and “Greenleaf,” among others.

King is repped by ICM, John Carrabino Management and Del Shaw.

Sud (“The Killing”), who will serve as showrunner on the series, executive produces with Gavin O’Connor, Lawrence Bender, Kevin Brown and Alex Reznik. The show hails from Fox 21. Sud

The series is based on the 2013 Russian action movie, “The Major,” which was written, directed by and starring Yuri Bykov and produced by Rock Films.
