In this week’s episode of “Someone You Need To Know,” Rashanah chats with the cast and crew of the popular yet edgy FX series “SnowFall.”
The highly anticipated fourth season of the hit FX series, “SnowFall,” kicked off on February 24; with a gut-wrenching plot, viewers see the rise of power in the character known as Franklin Saint, jaw-dropping moments, and more shocking twists!
The cast and showrunners share their filming experience during a pandemic, the impact of civil unrest, highlights of season 4, and more.
In case you aren’t aware, SnowFall is an American Crime Drama inspired by actual events that follow the drug trade, the rise of the crack epidemic in South Central LA during the ’80s, the devastation caused to the Black Community around the U.S, and the possible involvement of the CIA helping the rise of the crack epidemic.
At the beginning of Season 4: It’s 1985, and Ronald Reagan has just won his second term as the United States president. Three years prior, Reagan declares a “war on drugs.” And business is going great for the show’s lead character Franklin Saint (played by Damson Idris), as his drug trade continues to grow with the sale of crack (brick by brick) throughout South Central LA.
Many believe the United States helped fund the then war against the Nicaraguan government from the sale of crack cocaine in LA during the ’80s. Viewers will see for themselves to decide what is fictional and what is not, keep watching and pay attention.
“SnowFall” is created by the late John Singleton & Eric Amadio, and Dave Andron. Snowfall is executive produced by Singleton, Andron, Thomas Schlamme, Eric Amadio, Michael London, Trevor Engelson, Leonard Chang, Walter Mosley, and Julie DeJoie.
SnowFall Wednesdays at 10 pm. Next day #FXonHulu.
