When an African-American police officer kills an unarmed white college student, a small town in North Carolina is turned upside-down. From Gina Prince-Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights," "The Secret Life of Bees," "Love & Basketball") and Reggie Rock Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights," "Notorious"), the 10-hour event series is an explosive look at the criminal justice system.
Who says our protectors don't have problems too. some of these cops are worse than criminals (Graceland) (Chicago PD) (Gang Related) and some of them deal with forces we can't understand (supernatural)(Lost Girl) (Beauty and the Beast). but there are those that are in a league of there own (the mentalist) (castle) (psych) (the closer). and those with amazing intellect (elementary) (bones) (scorpion) the one thing they all agree on is people are capable of anything given motive and opportunity. and all they have to do is PROVE IT!!
