    Seven Seconds is a crime drama surrounding the hit-and-run death of a young black boy from Jersey City, NJ by the hands of a white police officer. With law enforcement cover-ups and racial tension rising in the community, the local judicial system and family members try to find answers.

    It's actually based off of a 2013 Russian film called The Major.

    Without revealing too many spoilers, here's why you should check it out:

    The acting is phenomenal!!! You can practically feel the emotion in all of these stills. I found myself yelling at the screen, clapping, and reaching for tissues all in one episode.


    Honestly, seeing Regina King's name attached to this project is what really drew me in. I love watching her in crime dramas.

    Plus, there's plenty of eye candy. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to Coley Mustafa Speaks. He's 6 feet of chocolate deliciousness.
