Snowfall Season 3? BBC Two has acquired UK rights to the renewed FX drama, boosting its revenue and reach as it chases a third season in the coming year.
Acclaimed director John Singleton’s first drama for TV, Snowfall, comes to BBC Two
Los Angeles, 1983: a storm is coming and its name is cocaine.
Following an ensemble cast of characters set on an intense collision course, Snowfall explores the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic and the major impact it had on American society and culture. Franklin Saint (Damson Idris – main picture) is a young street entrepreneur on a quest for success, whilst Gustavo Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta – pictured above) is a Mexican wrestler caught up in a power struggle in a Mexican crime family. Lucia Villanueva (Emily Rios) is the self-possessed daughter of a Mexican crime lord, and Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson) is a CIA operative running from a dark past who begins an off-book operation to fund the Nicaraguan Contras.
Snowfall (10×60) was created by Boyz n the Hood director John Singleton, alongside Eric Amadio and Dave Andron, who also serves as showrunner. Its Executive Producers are Singleton, Andron, Amadio, plus Thomas Schlamme, Michael London and Trevor Engelson. The series has been acquired by Patrick Holland and Sue Deeks, Head of Programme Acquisition, for BBC Two. It is distributed by 20th Century Fox Television Distribution and will air on BBC Two this autumn.
