CBS released an official first look trailer for its eight-episode event series The Red Line, from executive producers Ava DuVernay and Greg Berlanti. It will debut on Sunday, April 28.
As described on the series' official site, The Red Line begins with the mistaken shooting of a black doctor at the hands of a white cop and unfolds from the perspective of each of the families connected to the tragedy. It's a then-and-now meets us-and-them tale about the often-personal politics of crime.
The show stars Noah Wyle (The Romanoffs), Noel Fisher (Shameless), Emayatzy Corinealdi (Roots), and Howard Charles (The Musketeers).
Victoria Mahoney directed the pilot.
