Seven Seconds is Netflix’s new crime anthology series, and it definitely has a True Detective vibe to it. Although, it’s from the producers of the underrated drama The Killing, so perhaps that’s a more apt comparison.
Check out the trailer here:
In an instant, life is forever changed for Brenton Butler and his family. After a white cop accidentally hits and critically injures a black teenager, a northeastern city explodes with racial tensions, an attempted cover up and its aftermath, and the trial of the century. From creator and executive producer, Veena Sud (The Killing) comes Seven Seconds – a thrilling new anthological crime drama that explores the human stories behind the headlines.
The series stars two-time Emmy winner Regina King (American Crime) alongside breakout British actress Clare-Hope Ashitey (Doctor Foster), Russell Hornsby (Fences), Beau Knapp (Sand Castle), Michael Mosley (Ozark), David Lyons (Safe Haven), Raul Castillo (Special Correspondents), Zackary Momoh (A United Kingdom), Nadia Alexander (Blame), and Coley Speaks (Circle).
The cast is a who’s who of “oh yeah that person,” and what looks to be a strong leading performances from Regina King and Claire-Hope Ashity. We’ll see how the mystery all pans out when Seven Seconds hits Netflix February 23.
