Subscribe to Rewind 105.7 on

After a lengthy development for John Singleton’s crack-cocaine drama Snowfall, FX is finally dusting off a premiere. Venture to 1983 South Central with our first official trailer for the new series, along with word of an July premiere.

Now set to bow on Wednesday, July 5, the 10-episode series follows Damson Idris as Franklin Saint, a street entrepreneur raised in South Central but educated in the Valley, and “determined to raise his station in life through whatever means necessary.” Boyz n the Hood director Singleton wrote the pilot with executive producers Dave Andron and Eric Amadio, while the synopsis reads:

Los Angeles 1983. A storm is coming and its name is cocaine. 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 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 Luica Villanueva (Emily Rios), the self-possessed daughter of a Mexican crime lord.

FX will release longer Snowfall  promos soon, so watch the first teasers below and stay tuned.
