The numerous reports of shooting deaths of young Black teens at the hands of police officers and the controversy that comes with that seems to have spawned a TV show.
A police shooting drama starring Sanaa Lathan was recently picked up by Fox.
According to Hollywood Reporter:
The show explores the aftermath of racially charged shootings in a small town in Tennessee. Sanaa Lathan (The Perfect Guy) stars an expert investigator who digs into the cases, alongside a special prosecutor sent to the town by the Department of Justice. The pair must navigate the media attention, public debate and social unrest that comes with such volatile cases as they seek justice before the divided town erupts.
The series is written and produced by Gina Prince-Bythewood and Reggie Rock Bythewood.
