SET in 1983 Los An­ge­les, this 10-part drama is set against the in­fancy of the crack co­caine epi­demic and its ul­ti­mate rad­i­cal im­pact on the cul­ture as we know it.

The story fol­lows nu­mer­ous char­ac­ters on a vi­o­lent col­li­sion course in­clud­ing Franklin Saint (Dam­son Idris), a young street en­tre­pre­neur on a quest for power; Gus­tavo “El Oso” Za­p­ata, a Mex­i­can wrestler caught up in a power strug­gle within a crime fam­ily; Teddy McDon­ald, a CIA op­er­a­tive run­ning from a dark past who be­gins an off-book oper­a­tion to fund the Nicaraguan Con­tra, and Lu­cia Vil­lanueva, the self-pos­sessed daugh­ter of a Mex­i­can crime lord.

Angela Lewis (pic­tured) plays Franklin’s Aunt Louie, a for­mer party girl who is cap­ti­vated by her nephew’s vi­sion.
