Riz Ahmed Stars in HBO Miniseries 'The Night Of'

A new miniseries is coming out next week, and it's HBO's big summer programming, premiering on July 10th. Based on the 2008 British television series Criminal Justice, this one is an 8-part crime procedural that takes us through the workings of the New York City justice system after Ahmed's character is arrested for murder. Steven Zaillian, longtime Hollywood screenwriter, who scripted Moneyball and Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, among others, is behind this one and directed several episodes. Early word is strong, so I'll definitely be checking this out.
