"SNOWFALL" CAST EMOTIONALLY REFLECT ON THE SHOW'S CREATOR THE LATE OSCAR NOMINATED DIRECTOR JOHN SINGLETON
Posted By: Tanisha LaVerne Grant on July 13, 2019 |
On Monday July 8, 2019 the cast of "Snowfall" celebrated its season 3 premiere and closed out its 5 city press tour at USC. A bitter sweet occasion as USC was where the show's creator John Singleton the youngest person at the age of 24 and 1st African American nominated for an Academy award for his 1992 film "Boyz in the Hood" cultivated his cinematic genius and it is also where he was memorialized after he passed away on April 28, 2019 after suffering a massive stroke.
It's the summer of 1984, and it's season three of Snowfall. Crack **** is spreading like wildfire through South Central Los Angeles, continuing its path of destruction and changing the culture forever.
Police are waking up to this growing epidemic, and Sergeant Andre Wright (Marcus Henderson) has set his sights on budding Kingpin and next-door neighbor Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) and his people. While local law enforcement fights to stem the tide, Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson) and the CIA are working hard to make sure the flow of **** into L.A. doesn't stop. To continue funding the war against communism in Central America, Teddy will need to find new routes into the United States using Gustavo "El Oso" Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta) and what's left of the Villanueva family. As the stakes and losses continue to mount, our players truly begin to understand the destructive force they have set in motion and must reexamine their own motivations and the cost of continuing forward from here.
Created by the late John Singleton & Eric Amadio and Dave Andron, Snowfall is executive produced by Singleton, Amadio, Andron, Thomas Schlamme, Michael London and Trevor Engelson. Andron serves as showrunner.
