The storyline of A Man in Full
A Man in Full is an adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s best-selling 1998 book of the same name. A Man in Full’s Amazon book description is as follows:
Atlanta, Georgia, a racially diverse boomtown full with new money and cunning politicians, serves as the scene for the story. The protagonist is Charles Croker, once a collegiate football hero, now a late-middle-aged Atlanta conglomerate king whose outsize ego has at last gone up against reality. Charlie is the owner of a 29,000-acre quail-shooting plantation, has a young, demanding second wife, and a depressing amount of debt on his half-empty office building.
While this is happening, Conrad Hensley, a young, idealistic father of two, loses his job at the Croker Global Foods warehouse close to Oakland and finds himself sinking deeper and deeper into the American legal system. Back in Atlanta, renowned black attorney Roger White II is asked to represent Georgia Tech running back Fareek “the Canon” Fanon in order to prevent the city’s delicate racial balance from blowing out of proportion. Fanon is a native of the city’s slums and is accused of date-raping the daughter of a prominent white establishment figure.
Who is in the cast of A Man in Full?
We learned that Jeff Daniels would play the aforementioned Charlie Croker role in April 2022. The character is described as having a lot of pride and charisma in cast grids that What’s on Netflix has access to. We’re informed that a number of stars, including Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Woody Harrelson, and George Clooney, were under consideration for Charlie’s role. The two-time Primetime Emmy winner was also a part of the Netflix Original limited series Godless. He is likely most recognised for his work on HBO’s The Newsroom. Daniels can also be viewed on Netflix in the US with the last year’s addition of The Comey Rule.
In July 2022, it was announced that Diane Lane would play Charlie Croker’s wife Martha in the performance. Her character “emerges from the shadow of her ex-husband (Daniels) as his real estate empire begins to implode,” according to Deadline. Beware the latent; Martha’s rebuild offers a financial and personal risk due to the baggage that comes with a 30-year marriage. Lane is most known for his work in movies like Under the Tuscan Sun, Justice League, and House of Cards on Netflix.
The series has cast Tom Pelphrey. The actor’s performance as Ben Davis in Netflix’s Ozark earned him a Primetime Emmy nomination. In the Netflix series Mank, he also played Joe Mankiewicz.
Josh Pais (Joker), Evan Roe (Madam Secretary), Chanté Adam (Roxanne Roxanne), Aml Ameen (Yardie), Bill Camp (12 Years a Slave), William Jackson Harper (Midsommar), Jon Michael Hill (Elementary), Sarah Jones (For All Mankind), and Lucy Liu are also joining the cast of A Man in Full (Kill Bill), Currently, it is not anticipated that Regina King will appear in the show.
When will A Man in Full be available on Netflix?
The limited series was once anticipated to begin filming as early as May 2022, however production is now scheduled to begin in 2022. But it didn’t happen like that. Instead, based on current production plans, we anticipate that the series will start filming on August 8 and continue through to December 10 of 2022. The limited series will be entirely filmed in Atlanta, Georgia.
A Man in Full has no official release date from Netflix yet, but given that filming may begin as early as 2022, we can certainly anticipate the show to debut on the service in 2023. Six hour-long episodes of the Netflix series A Man in Full are announced.
