Regina King continues to reign supreme!

The award-winning actress and director is teaming up with David E. Kelley on “A Man in Full,” a limited series for Netflix adapted from the Tom Wolfe novel.

In the series, when Atlanta real estate mogul Charlie Croker faces sudden bankruptcy, political and business interests collide as Charlie defends his empire from those attempting to capitalize on his fall from grace.

David E. Kelley will serve as writer, executive producer, and showrunner.

Regina King will direct the first three of six one-hour episodes and she will serve as executive producer under her Royal Ties production banner.

In a statement, David said:

A passion project for me, no doubt.

The opportunity to tackle Tom Wolfe’s brilliant and prescient novel, to have Regina helming — I could not be more excited.

Regina added:

All I can say is when David E. Kelley calls, you just say yes.

I know this partnership will produce something special.

Regina also has a first look deal with Netflix under her Royal Ties production company so there are more great things to come.
