John Singleton‘s newest television hit REBEL premieres tonight on BET with stars Danielle Mone Truitt, Giancarlo Esposito, Mykelti Williamson and Cliff “Method Man” Smith.
“Rebel is a detective thriller. I call it Shaft with a sister. It was time to see a black woman on TV kicking some ass. She starts out as a cop and becomes disillusioned with being a cop and transcends into being a private investigator in Oakland. We haven’t had a hero that worked with the community.”
REBEL premieres on BET, March 28th at 10:00PM ET/PT. Click the link below to hear the entire interview.
