TANISHA LAVERNE GRANT INTERVIEWS SANAA LATHAN AT THE NEW YORK CITY SCREENING OF "SHOTS FIRED" (1730 hits)

Entertainment Correspondent Tanisha LaVerne Grant was on the scene Thursday night for the New York screening for the much-anticipated new FOX series "Shots Fired"at the Paley Center for Media. Creators/executive producers Gina Prince-Bythewood and Reggie Bythewood attended along with cast members Sanaa Lathan, Stephan James, Mack Wilds, Richard Dreyfuss and Jill Hennessy.


Attendees enjoyed a pre-reception followed by a screening of the premiere episode and a Q&A moderated by Associated Press editor Nekesa Moody.


Special guests included activist Nicole Paultre Bell (fiancee of Sean Bell), fashion icon Bethann Hardison, actor Rotimi ("POWER"), NY City Councilman Jumaane Williams, actor J. Alphonse Nicholson ("Shots Fired") and model Ebonee Davis.


#ShotsFired is a 10-part event mystery that examines the dangerous aftermath of two racially charged shootings by law enforcement in a small southern town. With amazing music, and an all-star cast led by Sanaa Lathan, Stephan James, Mack Wilds and Helen Hunt, "Shots Fired" will entertain and challenge perspectives. 


The series premieres March 22 at 8/7c on FOX, prior to the spring return of "Empire" at 9/8c.
