FX has a thing for gritty programming, so at first blush its new Snowfall TV show — from creators John Singleton, Eric Amadio, and Dave Andron — looks like it will fit right in. While it is yet to be renewed for a second season, the California Film Commission has already awarded the production a tax credit for season two, so Snowfall is well-positioned. Still, it remains to be seen how it will do in the ratings. Will Snowfall be cancelled or renewed for second season? Stay tuned.
A period crime drama, Snowfall stars Damson Idris, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Carter Hudson, Emily Rios, Michael Hyatt, Amin Joseph, Angela Lewis, Isaiah John, Juan Javier Cárdenas, Alon Moni Aboutboul, Malcolm Mays, and Filipe Valle Costa. The FX TV series kicks off in 1983 Los Angeles, at the dawn of the crack cocaine epidemic. The story centers on diverse characters, from an L.A. family, to a Nicaraguan Contra soldier, a sidelined CIA Agent, an Israeli expat, and a Mexican crime family. Expect these characters to crash into each other’s lives in a brutal fashion.
