HBO will premiere the new eight-part limited dramatic series The Night Of on July 10, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT. The series was created by Steven Zaillian (American Gangster) and Richard Price, with Zaillian directing seven episodes and co-writing four with Price. Zaillian, Price, Jane Tranter, James Gandolfini, and Peter Moffat executive produce. John Turturro and Riz Ahmed lead the cast that includes Michael Kenneth Williams, Bill Camp, Jeannie Berlin, Poorna Jagannathan, Payman Maadi, Glenne Headly, Amara Karan, Sofia Black-D’Elia, Paul Sparks, Ben Shenkman, Afton Williamson, Paulo Costanzo, Ned Eisenberg, Mohammad Bakri, Nabil Elouahabi, Ashley Thomas, Glenn Fleshler, and Chip Zien.

“It’s a crime story, a police story, a legal story, a corrections story,” said Zaillian. “You make a story about all that, tell it honestly, and it will naturally be a social story.”

The Plot: Pakistani-American college student Nasir “Naz” Khan, who lives with his parents in Queens, NY, takes his father’s taxi to go a party in Manhattan. But what starts as a perfect night for Naz becomes a nightmare when he’s arrested for murder. The show delves into the intricacies of a complex New York City murder case with cultural and political overtones. The story examines the police investigation, the legal proceedings, the criminal justice system and Rikers Island, where the accused await trial.
