The first two episodes of the much anticipated ten episode series “Shots Fired” will screen at the Sundance Film Festival, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The 33rd Annual Sundance Film Festival will be held from January 19th to January 29th in Park City, UT. “Shots Fired” is featured in the “Special Events” category.
In addition to Steve, the “Shots Fired” cast includes Sanaa Lathan, Stephan James, Helen Hunt, Richard Dreyfuss, and Mack Wilds. The screening will be followed by an extended Q & A. No word yet on cast members who will be in attendance or the date of the screening.
From The Hollywood Reporter, “Other hot-button fare includes the first two episodes of the 10-hour series Shots Fired from executive producers Gina Prince-Bythewood, Reggie Rock Bythewood, Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo. The series takes place in the wake of racially charged shootings in a North Carolina town, where an investigator digs into the cases alongside a special prosecutor. Together they seek justice while navigating the ensuing media attention and public unrest threatening the divided town.”
