The upcoming series produced by Antoine Fuqua stars Stephan James as a young black Iraq War veteran named Rayshawn and Laurence Fishburne as a sympathetic cop. 

In the series, Rayshawn (James) is set up by New Orleans police on a drug deal, runs for his life, and takes refuge inside his apartment building with his girlfriend and child. During this growing mayhem, a named Steven Poincy (Fishburne) plays the role of negotiator, and, over the course of one brutally stressful day, tries to get Rayshawn to calmly surrender in order to avoid an escalation of unnecessary violence.
