Nate Parker’s Next Gig: ‘Black & Blue,’ Feature About LAPD Hero Ralph Waddy



Nate Parker is attached to direct Black & Blue, a feature based on the life of decorated LAPD detective Ralph Waddy.
Parker is rewriting a script originally penned by Jim McGrath.

Black & Blue will revolve around Ralph Waddy’s life, a true hero at the LAPD, during what was the most racially charged period in the city’s history as it dealt with the Watts riots, Robert Kennedy’s assassination at the Ambassador Hotel, the rise of the Black Panthers, the capture of the Skid Row Slasher and the Manson Murders
