Storyline

Examining the dangerous aftermath of racially charged shootings in a small Southern town, SHOTS FIRED is a dramatic new event series that is a "why done it?" and a "who done it?" From Gina Prince-Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights," "The Secret Life of Bees," "Love and Basketball") and Reggie Rock Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights," "Notorious"), the 10-hour event series is an explosive look at the criminal justice system. When an African-American police officer kills an unarmed white college student, a small town in North Carolina is turned upside-down.

Get Your Facts Straight
23 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are going to make a TV show on a topic like this and reference previous shootings, get your facts straight. It is a show and has creative freedom, as well as the freedom to show cops however they like. However, when you start bringing in real life situations, you have some responsibility for the truth.
