This dramatic new event series examines the dangerous aftermath of racially charged shootings in a small North Carolina town. An expert investigator digs into the cases alongside a special prosecutor, and together they navigate the media attention, public debate, and social unrest that comes with such volatile cases—seeking justice before the divided town erupts. As they pull back the layers of both cases, they suspect a cover-up that may involve some of the state's most powerful people, and learn that the truth is rarely black and white.
Shots Fired is both a “why done it”' and a “who done it?” From Gina Prince-Bythewood (Beyond the Lights, The Secret Life of Bees, and Love & Basketball—2000 Sundance Film Festival) and Reggie Rock Bythewood (Beyond the Lights, Notorious), the 10-hour event series is an explosive look at the criminal justice system created by two incisive and unflinching storytellers.
The Festival presents two episodes of the series, which is scheduled to air on Fox in 2017. An extended conversation with the creators and actors will follow.
