‘Shots Fired’ Delivers Thrilling Trailer

The first few seconds are intense.

A voice is heard as a gun is pulled. A body runs across the screen followed by a ringing shot. A Black cop has the gun in his hand and then the camera exposes a young white male laid-out on the concrete with blood spilling from his body.

Already, writer/director Gina Prince-Bythewood has your heart pounding and your eyes invested into what’s to come next in her 10-episode series, Shots Fired.

Starring Sanaa Lathan, Stephan James and Tristan Wilds, the political drama takes on the social unrest that sparked the #BlackLivesMatter movement and flips the scenario by having a Black cop fatally wound a White teen. However, the stories that reflect the various cases similar to Black males shot by White officers are also at the center of the story.

Ultimately, Shots Fired examines the criminal justice system and displays the racial divide from all perspectives.
