What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the FOX television network, Shots Fired stars Sanaa Lathan, Stephan James, Stephen Moyer, Will Patton, Mack Wilds, Aisha Hinds, Clare-Hope Ashitey, Conor Leslie, DeWanda Wise, and Richard Dreyfuss. Helen Hunt, Jill Hennessy, and Dennis Haysbert guest star.
A timely mystery drama thriller, Shots Fired is a 10-hour limited series which explores the tense aftermath of two racially charged shootings in a small North Carolina town. When African-American Deputy Joshua Beck (Wilds) shoots and kills an unarmed white college student, it unsettles his small burg. Before the community comes to terms with the disturbing incident, frustrating grows, regarding the overlooked murder of an African-American teenager. As tensions flare, the Department of Justice launches an official inquiry and dispatches experienced investigator Ashe Akino (Lathan) and young Special Prosecutor Preston Terry (James) to investigate.
Season One Ratings
Although FOX has billed it as both an “event series,” and a “10-hour film,” if Shots Fired scores in the Nielsen ratings, smart money says they will find a way to bring it back, perhaps as an anthology drama like ABC‘s American Crime, or American Crime Story on FX. After all, the networks never worry about my nutritional needs. I will keep an eye on the ratings but, at this point, I don’t forsee a second season.
