While reviews have been mixed, the series is faring well against its competition, ranking as one of the top 5 cable dramas that have premiered this year in key demographics.
Co-created by famed director and screenwriter John Singleton, Snowfall takes place in 1983 Los Angeles, with the crack cocaine epidemic in its infancy. The drama follows various characters from different walks of life who are on a violent collision course that will ultimately have a radical and lasting impact on our culture.
