HBO’s riveting new dramatic series The Night Of will air four new one-hour episodes in August 2016, with the August 28th episode the season’s finale. The Night Of, which consists of – unfortunately – only eight episodes, is based on BBC’s Criminal Justice created by Peter Moffat. The U.S. version is executive produced by Steven Zaillian, Richard Price, Jane Tranter, James Gandolfini and Peter Moffat, and stars Riz Ahmed, John Turturro, Bill Camp, Jeannie Berlin, and Michael Kenneth Williams.

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.
