Fox has released a stylish new Gang Related trailer. Ramon Rodriguez stars as a conflicted officer with gang ties who joins a task force to take down the gangs of Los Angeles. Terry O’Quinn, RZA, Cliff Curtis, Rey Gallegos, Jay Hernandez, Sung Kang, Inbar Levi, and Shantel VanSanten co-star. Chris Morgan, the writer behind entries 3 through 7 of the Fast & Furious series, created the drama. Scott Rosenbaum (The Shield) is the showrunner and executive produces with Brian Grazer (24). Allen Hughes (Broken City) directed the pilot.
From the trailer, Gang Related looks like a serial that will spend equal time with the cops and the gangsters, which should give it an edge over your typical police procedural. I hope Rodriguez is up for the challenge of a surely demanding role—at the very least, it’s nice to see a complex Latino character at the center of a broadcast show like this. Gang Related premieres Thursday, May 22 at 9/8c on Fox. Check out the new Gang Related trailer after the jump.
