Using Apple TV Plus, you can watch Black Bird and see what’s going on behind two distinct prison walls. For the first time in television history, this new limited series features Ray Liotta’s final television appearance. With a perfect rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it appears like Apple TV Plus will be the next great hit.
For those unfamiliar with Keene’s 2010 book In With the Devil: A Fallen Hero, A Serial Killer, and a Dangerous Bargain for Redemption, the inspiration for Black Bird came from a true story. Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone and Black Bird, adapted it for the screen.
What Is Black Bird About?
The story of James Keene (Egerton), a former high school football standout and the son of local police chief James “Big Jim” Keene, is based on events that actually occurred (Liotta). His future seems bright, now that he holds a Master’s degree. It doesn’t take James long to be seduced by the glittering world of the mob and the corruption it brings. When James is sentenced to up to ten years in federal prison, his entire world falls apart.

Things go from bad to worse when the police break into James’ house and arrest him after he has been shown living a luxurious life as a crook.
