Snowfall 

Review of "Snowfall" 7/15/17 by Suzanne
Airs Wednesdays 10pm on FX

This is one of the best shows I've seen that's set in the past. It takes place in the early 80's when the crack epidemic was getting started in L.A. They do a very good job of capturing the styles and hair of the era. Also, the story is very good, and the actors are great. It's not my kind of show, but I found it intriguing. I generally don't like shows about drug dealers, criminals, mafia, or gangs, but the characters on this show are interesting, and the story really draws you in.

The show was created by three men, including John Singleton. The only deficiency is that it's mostly shown from a male perspective. This is a very minor complaint, though. I think anyone would enjoy it.

MORE INFORMATION:

Los Angeles. 1983. A storm is coming and its name is crack. Snowfall is 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.

The story 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.

Snowfall is created by John Singleton & Eric Amadio and Dave Andron and Executive Produced by Singleton, Andron, Thomas Schlamme, Amadio, Michael London and Trevor Engelson. Andron will serve as showrunner.

Snowfall premieres July 5th at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
