Last Thursday, FOX hosted its New York screening for the much-anticipated new series “Shots Fired” at the Paley Center for Media. Creators/executive producers Gina Prince-Bythewood and Reggie Bythewood attended along with cast members Sanaa Lathan, Stephan James, Mack Wilds, Richard Dreyfuss and Jill Hennessy.

Attendees enjoyed a pre-reception followed by a screening of the premiere episode and a Q&A moderated by Associated Press editor Nekesa Moody. Special guests included activist Nicole Paultre Bell (fiancee of Sean Bell), fashion icon Bethann Hardison, actor Rotimi (“POWER”), NY City Councilman Jumaane Williams, actor J. Alphonse Nicholson (“Shots Fired”) and model Ebonee Davis.

Earlier in the week FOX continued its promotional tour for the new series “Shots Fired” with a screening in Washington, D.C. Over 500 locals flocked to the Newseum to preview the highly-anticipated show created by Gina Prince-Bythewood and Reggie Rock Bythewood. Cast members in attendance were Sanaa Lathan, Stephan James, Mack Wilds and Richard Dreyfuss along with creator/executive producer Reggie Bythewood.

Special guests included White House Correspondent for AURN (and Q&A moderator for the evening) April Ryan, political strategist Angela Rye, former Bernie Sanders spokeswoman Symone Sanders, tv political analyst Jamal Simmons, retired NFL athlete Clinton Portis, singers Dante Jordan and David Chance from the R&B group Ruff Endz, singer/songwriter Wes Felton, journalist/tv host Jawn Murray, radio host and tv commentator Mo Ivory, attorney/tv personality Kendell Renee Kelly and more.

FOX 5 DC reporter Tisha Lewis welcomed the audience followed by remarks from Tony Dixon, president of the DC chapter of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE). After the screening, April Ryan brought the cast to the stage for a lively discussion on the origins of “Shots Fired,” what audiences will take away from it and the process of filming.

#ShotsFired is a 10-part event mystery that examines the dangerous aftermath of two racially charged shootings by law enforcement in a small southern town. With amazing music, and an all-star cast led by Sanaa Lathan, Stephan James, Mack Wilds and Helen Hunt, “Shots Fired” will entertain and challenge perspectives.

The series premieres March 22 at 8/7c on FOX, prior to the spring return of “Empire” at 9/8c.
