AMC’s new show, ’61st Street,’ has stormed onto screens and already has viewers gripped.

Emmy Award winner Courtney B. Vance toplines the two-season event – which is executive produced by Michael B. Jordan by way of his Outlier Society production company, David Shanks, and BAFTA-winner Peter Moffat (who also created the series).

’61st Street’ uncovers the underbelly of the infamous Chicago criminal justice system; it follows the police and prosecutor investigation of a deadly drug bust that threatens to unravel the cop code of silence.

Vance leads the all-star cast, which includes Oscar-nominee Aunjanue Ellis, Brit Tosin Cole, Mark O’Brien, and Holt McCallany.
