Shots Fired is an event series that examines the dangerous aftermath of two radically charged shootings in a small southern town, providing an explosive autopsy of the US criminal justice system. Leading the Department of Justice’s inquiry into these shootings is seasoned investigator Ashe Akino (Sanaa Lathan) and a young prosecutor, Preston Terry (Stephen James), both of whom are African-American. As they start to peel back the layers of both cases, they suspect a cover-up that may involve some of the state’s most powerful people, including fiercely political North Carolina Governor Patricia Eamons (Helen Hunt).
Thought provoking and highly engaging, Shots Fired tackles some of the most thorny issues of our time, and unpacks how shocking and seemingly preventable incidents can affect a community.
Starring Sanaa Lathan (Love and Basketball), Stephan James (Selma), Helen Hunt (As Good as it Gets), Will Patton (Remember the Titans), Mack Wilds (The Wire) and Stephen Moyer (True Blood).
