If you were watching the Atlanta Falcons smash the Green Bay Packers Sunday evening, you may have noticed the new trailer for the upcoming 10-part series event “Shots Fired.” It’s a new show led by beloved film actress Sanaa Lathan and rising superstar Stephan James and debuts in March.
As previously reported, “Shots Fired” follows two out-of-town black prosecutors who are brought in to investigate the murder of a white teenager by a Black cop. However, things are not what they seem and the two must keep personal their bias and suspicions to themselves to seek the truth.
“Shots Fired” also features iconic TV and film actors Helen Hunt and Richard Dreyfuss as well as our girl Aisha Hinds (can’t wait to see her in UNDERGROUND) and Tristan “Mack” Wilds. The show was created by Reggie Rock Bythewood and Gina Prince-Bythewood.
It is also a very timely series considering the state of race relations in this country and the number of African-American men and women who have been killed at the hands of police officers. It will be interesting to see the twist in the story’s plot and how it all plays out.
