Clare-Hope Ashitey and Regina King star in the crime drama from 'The Killing' creator Veena Sud
With her latest crime drama, The Killing creator Veena Sud trades the rainy streets of Seattle for the slate-gray winter of New Jersey, and murders for a car accident that takes the life of a black teen.
After the white cop driver (Beau Knapp) calls his fellow Jersey City officers for help, he gets dragged into a cover-up that rapidly makes things worse.
