Love & Murder: Atlanta Playboy tells the story of Lance (Diggs), a successful businessman in Atlanta who revolutionized the city’s 911 system. As well as being known for his womanizing ways. When Lance is found murdered in his home, an investigation is launched to uncover the truth behind his professional and personal life. The film will reconstruct Lance’s life as told by the various players in it, revealing questions and allegations surrounding his death.

Was it a business rival, threatened by Lance’s bid for a big contract? Was it a scorned lover jealous of the place occupied in Lance’s bed? The film, much like the book, reconstructs Lance’s life as told by the various players in it.

Sharp, who is currently starring in ‘Power: Ghost’ will play Blair Herndon, Lance’s (Diggs) ex-wife.
