Regina King has signed on to Netflix’s 10-episode crime dramaSeven Seconds.

Written by Sud, Seven Seconds is based on the 2013 Russian action movie The Major (Майор). Tensions run high between African-American citizens and Caucasian police in Jersey City, where a teenage African-American boy is critically injured by a cop.

King will play Latrice Butler, a devout churchgoer and choir leader, a school secretary, a wife and the mother of a 15-year-old boy. After she and her family move out of the projects and become first-time homeowners, she is shaken to her core when she learns that in this time of promise, her son Brenton has been in an incident. Suddenly aware that there’s more to Brenton than she and her husband were aware of, Latrice is rocked by the power of her anger at her son’s predicament, an anger that will change her life and her relationship with her husband and more.

King is returning for the third installment of ABC’s American Crime and plays Erika Murphy on HBO’s The Leftovers.
