An official trailer for FX’s “Snowfall” has been published for the upcoming episode, “Fault Lines.”
Synopsis of the Season 5
It’s the summer of 1986 and Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) and his family are on the brink of having it all: they are wealthy beyond their wildest fantasies.
Just as the foundations begin to crumble beneath their feet. Lawmakers from both parties are focusing their attention on the rock cocaine pandemic after the terrible death of Len Bias.
Authorities in Los Angeles have decided that the only way to cope with the escalating problem of street hoodlums is to use force, and as a result, the L.A.P.D. has become increasingly militarized, including the development of the C.R.A.S.H.
It has never been more hazardous on the streets of South Central Los Angeles as the Saint family tries to avoid the police, the warring gangs, and the CIA.
However, the greatest danger to the family is themselves as they struggle to keep greed, hatred and the ego from splitting them apart.
Snowfall is executive produced by John Singleton, Eric Amadio, Dave Andron, Thomas Schlamme, Amadio, Michael London, Trevor Engelson, Leonard Chang, Walter Mosley, and Julie DeJoie, with Singleton and Andron serving as showrunners.
