HBO has revealed an intriguing trailer for their upcoming limited series The Night Of, which will premiere Sunday, July 10th.
Starring John Turturro (Exodus: Gods and Kings, Transformers) and Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), and directed by Steven Zaillian (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Moneyball) and James Marsh (The Theory of Everything, Man on Wire) The Night Of delves into the intricacies of a complex New York City murder case with cultural and political overtones. The story follows Riz Ahmed as a Pakistani-American taxi driver accused of murdering a female stranger after a night of partying. The tale revolves around the night of the crime (hence the title) and examines the police investigation, the legal proceedings, the criminal justice system and the feral purgatory of Rikers Island, where the accused await trial for felony crimes. Filmed in and around Manhattan, the HBO series is based on the BBC’s Criminal Justice, created by Peter Moffat.
The Night Of is an eight-part limited series created by Steven Zaillian and Richard Price. It is executive produced by Zaillian, Price, Jane Tranter, James Gandolfini, and Peter Moffat; co-executive produced by Garrett Basch, Nancy Sanders and Mark Armstrong.
Although the first episode will run 90 minutes, additional hour-long episodes will debut subsequent Sundays at the same time.
