Netflix and Justin Lin team up for The Stand Off, a period drama written by Mark Heyman (Black Swan). The show will center on the conflict between a newly formed SWAT team and the conflict that ensues as they prepare to raid the Black Panther Party’s headquarters in Los Angeles.

While the film received multiple bids, Lin and Heyman ultimately went with Netflix, with Netflix’s newly appointed film division head Scott Stuber helping finalize the deal.
