*Veena Sud is bringing another crime drama to Netflix.
The showrunner for “The Killing” is about to score a series pickup for her new series “Seven Seconds,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In the drama, tensions run high between African-American citizens and white police officers in Jersey City, where a teenage African-American boy is critically injured by a cop.
Sud would serve as showrunner on the series, which is eyeing a 10-episode order, THR reports. She’ll executive produce with Lawrence Bender, Kevin Brown, Alex Reznik and Gavin O’Connor, the latter of whom would also direct.
Fox 21, where Sud is under an overall deal, will produce the project.
Netflix declined to comment.
The series would bring Sud back to Netflix, which revived her crime drama “The Killing” for a fourth season in 2014 after it had been canceled by AMC.
“Seven Seconds” is the latest TV project to tackle the Black Lives Matter movement that has sparked nationwide protests over the police killings of unarmed African-Americans.
