(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – March 8, 2017 – Last night, 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.
Last night was a ball of fun for several reasons!
First and foremost its not everyday that we get to see our Media Besties and catch up on all things entertainment and all things DC and who’s doing what and whose moving where and who just got a new show and who is doing big things etc… We’re a small intimate community, we work hard but we play harder, and last night at The Newseum on Pennsylvania Avenue we did one of the things we do best, we covered that red carpet and we looked good doing it! lol! not only that it’s not every single day we get such a cool slice of Hollywood in our back yard…. Last night’s red carpet featured The Legendary Richard Dreyfuss, #BadAshe Sanaa Lathan, Mack Wilds, Stephan James @tdotsteph & a few others!
Highlights of the night included Taking selfies with #Badashe aka Sanaa’s Bad Girl Character on the new 10 Hour Event, Hearing Richard Dreyfuss offer up some surprising insights that got us all thinking and made us realize that Richard Dreyfuss is actually cooler than we knew. Another highlight was when #ShotsFired Star Mack Wilds went in the audience to go get his TV Son actor Liam Dance. The Star of the show was actually the show itself #ShotsFired. The show is built on a great premise, it’s relevant to everything happening in the news on a daily but it takes a look at things from a fresh set of eyes and flips some of the stereotypes we’re used to flushing out. Last nights show left us with a huge cliffhanger and we can’t wait to see the next hour!
The series premieres March 22 at 8/7c on FOX, prior to the spring return of “Empire” at 9/8c.
