TV show description:
The crime series 61st Street TV was created by Peter Moffat.
In the story, Moses Johnson (Cole) is a promising black high school athlete who becomes embroiled in Chicago’s notoriously corrupt criminal justice system. Kidnapped by police as a suspected gang member, he finds himself in the eye of the storm as police and prosecutors seek revenge for the death of an officer in a drug bust gone awry.
Franklin Roberts (Vance) is a twilight public defender serving in America’s busiest courthouse. After Franklin promises his wife that he will retire to spend more time with their 17-year-old autistic son, Franklin realizes that Moses is the case of his life – one who will turn the entire Chicago justice system upside down and institutional racism and the endemic corruption can challenge his heart.
The series is based on in-depth research into the city’s history and the personal experiences of executive producer and writer J. David Shanks. He grew up as a young black man on the South Side and later became a Chicago police officer before breaking into the world of film and television.
This episode has not aired yet.
Original broadcast: TBD
