Black Bird is a gripping American prison thriller starring British actor Taron Egerton, based on the true tale of convicted drug dealer Jimmy Keene played by the late (Ray Liotta), who is compelled to extract a confession from suspected serial killer Larry Hall (Paul Walter Hauser) while imprisoned in a maximum-security facility.
The series is based on Jimmy’s and Hillel Levin’s true-crime biography In With The Devil: A Fallen Hero, a Serial Killer, and a Dangerous Bargain for Redemption (opens in new tab), which details how he made a deal with the devil to lower his own prison sentence. What is his mission? In order to learn the truth about Hall. Is Hall, on the other hand, simply telling Jimmy what he wants to hear?
