On next week’s episode of ATL HOMICIDE, detectives Quinn and Velazquez are called when 45-year-old Jerry Heard is found dead from gunshot wounds in an Atlanta alley. They learn from locals that Heard spends his nights at a bar trying to pick-up women. The night he was killed, Heard made passes at two different women, one with an armed boyfriend. Knowing that he could have been killed by the woman’s boyfriend, or either of the two women he met that night, the detectives set out to eliminate suspects.

The audience will have a front seat to the action – as if it’s happening in the moment – following two of Atlanta’s most decorated Homicide detectives as if they were on the case in their prime.

After his latest stint in Avengers: Endgame, actor Don Cheadle is set to star in a movie that he will produce himself. The movie, which is entitled Prince of Darkness, will portray the inspiring story of the first Black millionaire, Jeremiah G. Hamilton.

Cheadle will be teaming up once again with Steven Baigelman, who co-wrote the Miles Ahead screenplay with him in 2015. This time, Baigelman will write the script for the movie adapted from Shane White’s book Prince of Darkness: The Story of Jeremiah G. Hamilton, Wall Street’s First Black Millionaire which won the 2015 Society for Historians of the Early American Republic Best Book Prize.

Hamilton, who escaped from Haiti in 1828, became a successful Wall Street financier in less than a decade.


He worked with white people in the business world, married a white woman, bought a mansion in rural New Jersey, and owned railroad stock on trains he was not legally allowed to even ride. He reportedly accumulated about $2 million until his death in 1875. Hamilton became the richest Black man in the U.S. as he braved the norm during that time. The inspiring story that will be adapted to film is expected to bring more awareness about his life and how became known as the Prince of Darkness.
