Seven Seconds premieres

A procedural drama about the murder of a black teenager, the ensuing cover up, and the racial tensions that flare up in the absence of quick resolution of the case.

What starts off as a murder mystery turns into a gritty, often disheartening crime drama that has more on its mind. It delves into a drama that deals with issues of race.

The hit and run death of a black child named Brenton Butler in Jersey City by a (white) cop, speeding towards the hospital after he gets an emergency call about his pregnant wife, will explore the human story behind the headline.

The accident is clearly that – an accident. But when the distraught cop’s fellow officers arrive on the scene, they’re quick to cover the crime up. This are seven seconds in which the life of the envolved is altered forever.

The 10-part drama is available on Netflix.
