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. Before the town has a chance to grapple with this tragedy, the neglected murder of an African-American teen is brought to light, re-opening wounds that threaten to tear the town apart.

Great Acting, Great story-line, Hope it lasts
24 April 2017 | by mts-78680See all my reviews

I don't usually review TV Shows (just movies) but wanted to see what the masses think. Disappointingly, I see most viewers just want to be entertained and disapprove being awakened to reality.

This show has a combination of entertainment and exposure to possibly real problems in America! I say possibly because I can't confirm all these situations occur in small-town America but living in large metropolitan, I can say thee type incidents happen and sadly it's hard to stop.

I encourage viewers to try this Show without judging and you will find that the plot is great and the actors do a great job of getting into the characters! Definitely something I wish could last but fear it will be phased out as it touches on sensitive subjects for America...
