Watch: First Trailer For Steve Zaillian's HBO Limited Series 'The Night Of' Starring John Turturro And Riz Ahmed

Last week, we dove into the recent troubles HBO has been having, but let’s be clear: when all the cylinders are firing, they still have some of the best programming around. This summer, they’re unveiling a limited series that looks like it could be a knockout.

Screenwriter and director Steve Zaillian (“Moneyball,” “Gangs Of New York,” “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo“) has gone behind the camera for “The Night Of” starring John Turturro and Riz Ahmed, directing seven of the show’s eight episodes (James Marsh of “The Theory Of Everything” fame, has helmed one episode). The exact plot details remain under wraps, but the drama will detail the police investigation, the legal proceedings, the criminal justice system and the feral purgatory of Rikers Island, where the accused await trial for felony crimes.

Co-starring Michael Kenneth Williams, Bill Camp, Jeannie Berlin, Poorna Jagannathan, Payman Maadi, Glenne Headly, Amara Karan, Sofia Black-D’Elia, Paul Sparks, Ben Shenkman, Afton Williamson, Paulo Costanzo, Ned Eisenberg, Mohammad Bakri, Nabil Elouahabi, Ashley Thomas, Glenn Fleshler, Chip Zien and Max Casella, “The Night Of” premieres at Tribeca, and hits HBO in July. Watch below.
