King will also produce the series that will reunite her with American Crime director John Ridley.

The series is based on Kim Reid’s 2007 memoir No Place Safe: A FamilyNo Place Safe tells the true story of the string of children to adult murders that occurred in Atlanta, Georgia between 1979 to 1980. Within that year at least 28 African American people – mainly boys- were killed.

Wayne Williams was arrested and convicted of two of the adult murders and sentenced to two life terms. The police also charged him with the death of many of the child murders. They didn’t try or convict in any of those cases, they just closed the case. The book is told from the eyes of Reid, who was 13 years old at the time and her mother was an investigator on the case.

Empire’s Wendy Calhoun will pen the TV adaptation of the book. American Crime executive producer is also attached to the series under the same title. 

The series will air on FX.
