FX’s new drama Snowfall has set a July 5 premiere
Snowfall, the new FX drama series about the start of the crack epidemic in Los Angeles, is set to premiere on Wednesday, July 5 at 10:00pm ET/PT. Created by John Singleton & Eric Amadio and Dave Andron, Snowfall is executive produced by all three men alongside Thomas Schlamme, Michael London and Trevor Engelson. Andron, best known for his work on Justified, serves as the Snowfall showrunner.
Set in Los Angeles in 1983, Snowfall begins with storm a coming and its name is crack. A one hour drama set against the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic and its ultimate radical impact on the culture as we know it, Snowfall follows numerous characters on a violent collision course, including: Franklin Saint (Damson Idris), young street entrepreneur on a quest for power; Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta), a Mexican wrestler caught up in a power struggle within a crime family; Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson), a CIA operative running from a dark past who begins an off-book operation to fund the Nicaraguan Contras and Lucia Villanueva (Emily Rios), the self-possessed daughter of a Mexican crime lord.
The pilot episode was written by Singleton, Amadio and Andron and directed by the Belgian directing team of Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Black, Image, Broeders).
