An American prison thriller, Black Bird is based on the true story of Jimmy Keene who was a drug dealer. Being one of the highly anticipated series of 2022, Apple TV+ ensured that the series will be known as a testament to excellence in the future. The true-crime memoir was written by Jimmy himself in collaboration with Hillel Levin and it is titled ‘In with The Devil: A Fallen Hero, A Serial Killer and a Dangerous Bargain for Redemption.
He shares his real-life story about how he settled for a bargain of a reduced sentence in return for receiving a confession from the high-profile serial murderer famously known as Larry Hall. All this happened when they were together spending time in a maximum-security prison. The readers who read the memoir felt the tension and a series adaptation was the only right thing to do after that.

Black Bird Plot
The story will walk you through the life of Jimmy Keene, a former high school football legend who was a son of a respected police officer. But in the sad turn of events, he was charged with involvement in drug dealing and later was convicted for it. As the sentence should be for any drug dealer, he got a 10-years sentence and will be housed in a minimum-security prison.
However, he was offered a choice that hardly anyone had ever received. Jimmy was asked if he would want to serve a full term without any chance of parole or settle in the maximum-security prison only to become friends with the dangerous suspected killer, Larry Hall. He needs to get a full confession out of his mouth for his crimes and for that, Jimmy will receive a shorter sentence for that. The only threat that existed was that his life would be in danger for that.
So, what will happen? Will he get the confession? Or Larry will catch Jimmy’s gameplay? We need to watch it to find out more.
