Synopsis of A Man in Full

The new limited series is an adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s 1998 bestselling novel, A Man in Full. According to Amazon, the story is set in Atlanta, Georgia, a racially mixed, late-century boomtown full of fresh wealth and wily politicians.

The main protagonist is Charles Croker, a former college football star turned late-middle-aged Atlanta conglomerate king. However, his outsized ego finally gets hit by reality. Croker owns a 29,000-acre quail-shooting plantation. He also has a young, demanding second wife, as well as a half-empty office complex loaded with debt.

Meanwhile, Conrad Hensley, a young father of two, is laid off from his job at the Croker Global Foods warehouse near Oakland. Hensley finds himself spiraling into the lower depths of the American legal system.

However, back in Atlanta, we meet Fareek “the Canon” Fannon, a star Georgia running back and homegrown product of the city’s slums. Meanwhile, Fareek stands accused of date-raping the daughter of a pillar of the white establishment. Upscale black lawyer Roger White II is asked to represent Fanon and to help keep Atlanta’s delicate racial balance from blowing sky-high.

Cast and release date of the Netflix limited series

As Netflix is yet to set a date for production to start on A Man in Full, the project is still in its early stages. In fact, the limited series is currently in the stage of development and scriptwriting. Also, no cast members have yet been announced for the Netflix limited series.

However, it is known that the limited series A Man in Full will run over six, hour-long episodes. As for the release date, if the Netflix series gets a 2022 production start, it will likely drop on the streamer at some stage in 2023.
