Review of Advanced Screening of Fox's "Shots Fired"

What do you get when you combine writer/director Gina Prince-Bythewood and writer/director/producer Reggie Rock Bythewood? You get a passionate, well written, directed and produced series about life in small town America dealing with a big city problem. Reggie Bythewood explained that "Shots Fired" was inspired by a conversation he had with his son after watching a TV event. Reggie Rock Bythewood has written and produced for Fox's drama "New York Undercover," directed "Biker Boyz" and "Daddy's Girls." Gina Prince-Bythewood wrote and directed "Love & Basketball" and directed "Disappearing Acts."   "Shots Fired" includes an all-star cast with Sanaa Lathan ("Love & Basketball," "The Best Man Holiday," "The Perfect Guy"), Mack Wilds ("Miracle Boys," "The Wire," "90210"), Richard Dreyfuss ("Madoff," "The Goodbye Girl," "Mr. Holland's Opus") and Stephan James ("Selma," "Book of Negroes," "Home Again").
The show is thought-provoking and thrilling. There are real life struggles with real life responses. The series premieres on Wednesday, March 22 at 8/7c on Fox.
