Blackbird is based on the 2010 autobiographical book With the Devil: A Fallen Hero, a Serial Killer, and a Dangerous Deal for Redemption by James Keane and Hillel Levin, which recounts Keane’s real-life experience while trying to get a confession from serial killer Larry Hall. According to NewsweekKeene, who worked as a drug dealer, was caught by local law enforcement and the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) in 1996 and sentenced to ten years in prison without the possibility of parole. As in the series, Keane was given the option to get out of jail if he could get a confession from Larry Hall. Initially reluctant to participate, Keene eventually agreed after his father had a stroke, motivated by the idea of ​​spending time with him.

Hall was arrested in 1995 for the rape and murder of 15-year-old Jessica Roach based on a confession he later tried to retract. Assistant U.S. Attorney Lawrence Beaumont was then determined to get Hall to confess again to the murder of Roach, as well as many other murders of young girls he was suspected of, namely the murder of Tricia Reitler, who disappeared in 1993.

Keene was able to force Hall to confess to the murder of Roach, and some time later to the murder of Reitler. Keane was then released from prison in early 1999 and had his criminal record erased. After his release, Keane was able to spend five years with his father before he died.
