Chris Rock will lead the cast of the new edition, but what's it about?

Per a statement from FX:

In 1950, at the end of two great American migrations — that of Southern Europeans from countries like Italy, who came to the U.S. at the turn of the last century and settled in northern cities like New York, Chicago, and African Americans who left the South in great numbers to escape Jim Crow and moved to those same cities — you saw a collision of outsiders, all fighting for a piece of the American dream.

In Kansas City, Missouri, two criminal syndicates have struck an uneasy peace. One Italian, one African American. Together they control an alternate economy — that of exploitation,

Alex Garland’s Sci-Fi Murder-Mystery Series ‘Devs’ Greenlit at FX, With Nick Offerman and Sonoya Mizuno to Star
It’s official: Alex Garland is coming to television. FX announced Friday morning that the “Ex Machina” and “Annihilation” director’s first major small screen foray has been ordered for an eight-episode season. The limited series “Devs” is set to premiere in 2019.

Devs,” which FX ordered to pilot last March, feels like a spiritual sequel to “Ex Machina” in some respects, if only because of its focus on a mysterious tech company. The official description provided by FX reads as follows:

FX Greenlights 2 New Limited Series: ‘Devs’ With Nick Offerman and ‘Shogun’

  • The Wrap
FX has greenlit two new limited series, “Shogun” and “Devs,” the cable channel announced during the Television Critics Association summer 2018 press tour Friday.

The 10-episode series “Shogun” is based on James Clavell’s novel of the same name. Set in feudal Japan, the story follows a mysterious female samurai and the shipwrecked English sailor John Blackthorne. Other key characters include Lord Toranaga, a shrewd, powerful daimyo, at odds with his own dangerous, political rivals and Lady Mariko, a woman with invaluable skills but dishonorable family ties, who must prove her value and allegiance.

“The story of Shōgun has captivated audiences since James Clavell first released his epic novel more than 40 years ago,” FX Networks CEO John Landgraf said. “The themes of an outsider encountering a new culture are as relevant today as then.”

The Good Fight Review: The Verdict on the Spinoff Is In (and It's... Good)
In the opening scene of The Good Fight (premiering Sunday, Feb. 19 at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access), liberal warrior Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski, reprising her role from The Good Wife) is watching a playback of President Trump’s inauguration on TV, and the horror and disgust on her face is unmistakable. It’s a timely and darkly amusing sequence that also proves to be the premiere’s weakest.

Chicago Pd Season 4 Episode 12 Review: Sanctuary

One thing that viewers can expect from any of the Dick Wolf franchises, is an episode or two dedicated to a ripped from the headlines case or current event. 

This go round, Chicago Pd Season 4 Episode 12 was a nod at the Charleston shooting. 

What I appreciated the most, is that for once the case wasn't "on the nose." In fact, it was so subtle that it barely registered until the end of the episode. Nothing about the case had anything to do with the real life tragedy. 

The case was that of a female jogger being sexually assaulted and killed in a park. The two suspects were two young black boys wearing hoodies. You know, same old, same old. 

Aside from Tillman having a few physical similarities to Dylan Roof (redhead with a bowl-cut), his being unapologetic and not showing an ounce of remorse, a fire bomb ruining a church,
