It’s not just California that is finally ending it’s drought, but the drought of Steve photos is also at an end since this seems to be an All Shots Fired week. For us here at AllStephenMoyer.com, we couldn’t be happier. It’s wonderful to get to see lots of photos of Steve after so little seen of him recently. Below are some photos of Stephen Moyer as he attended the Shots Fired FOX All-Star Party during the 2017 Winter TCA Tour at Langham Hotel on January 11, 2017 in Pasadena, California.
More comments about the Press Conference with the Shots Fired creators below:
Gary Newman Chairman of Fox said he’s also proud of Shots Fired, a limited series about race relations in a small town after a police shooting. “We think Shots Fired will be a major awards contender,” said Newman, who will give the series one of its best shots to succeed: pairing it with Empire (the No. 1 broadcast drama in 18-49; Fox renewed it today for Season 4) when that series returns March 22.
While the series seems like Fox’s version of American Crime, Newman said Shots Fired is a different type of show. “It takes thoughtful, sensitive issues and explores it in a way you have not seen on television,” he said.
The 10-episode event series will debut at the Sundance Film Festival and launch March 22 on Fox. The show, from executive producers Gina Prince-Bythewood, Reggie Rock Bythewood, Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo, examines the aftermath of two racially charged shootings in a small Southern town.
Initially, the town is turned upside down when an African-American police officer kills an unarmed white college student. In the course of the investigation, a neglected case involving the murder of an African-American teen is brought to light, and a DOJ investigator and special prosecutor uncover a potential cover-up involving North Carolina’s governor (Helen Hunt), and a real estate mogul/privatized prison owner (Dreyfuss).
Reggie Bythewood stressed that the series is a who-done-it mystery as well as a why-done-it. The mystery is the narrative to keep viewers on the edge of their seats and, while they’re leaning forward, hit them with the larger story. “The mystery element is the glue that keep us coming back,” he said.
One critic seemed to take umbrage that the initial shooting was not a white cop shooting a young black man, as “we’ve seen it so often in real life,” but the reverse.
“It’s easy for people who watch the news and, if you don’t identify with those on the screen, you turn it off,” Prince-Bythewood answered. By flipping the narrative, they think people will watch who might not otherwise identify with the characters. Bythewood jumped in with Attitus Finch’s To Kill a Mockingbird line, recently cribbed by President Obama: You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view … until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”
If successful, Shots Fired could “have a longer life” than the 10 episode season in some form, Grazer said.
