We Own This City Trailer Promises a Dark Look Behind Baltimore’s Finest

The HBO series starring Jon Bernthal—and from The Wire‘s David Simon—depicts the true events of a corrupt local police task force. 

Something is rotten in the city of Baltimore, and his name is Jon Bernthal. HBO has debuted the trailer for its upcoming six-part limited series, We Own This City. The series, starring Bernthal, is based off real events documented in the book of the same name by Baltimore Sun reporter Justin Fenton. The story will follow Bernthal as an officer in the ill-fated Baltimore Police Department’s Gun Trace Task Force that notoriously plagued the city.

The series boasts an impressive pedigree—with producers from The Wire (David Simon, crucially) attached and Reinaldo Marcus Green in the director’s chair—making We Own This City immediately must-watch television. Debuting on April 25, the series will premiere on HBO before being made available to stream on HBO Max.

Read on for everything we know, plus the teaser trailer.

?What is We Own This City about

As noted above, the series is based on Fenton’s book of the same name. The events of the series follows the true story of what happened when the Baltimore Police Department’s Gun Trace Task Force turned sour, following “the corruption and moral collapse that befell an American city in which the policies of drug prohibition and mass arrest were championed at the expense of actual police work.” (Essentially, Bernthal is a dirty cop who worked with his colleagues to make a quick buck with some real dirty practices.)

?Who Stars in the Series

Jon Bernthal leads the cast, alongside Wunmi Mosaku, Jamie Hector, McKinley Belcher III, Darrell Britt-Gibson, Josh Charles, Dagmara Domińczyk, Rob Brown, Don Harvey, and David Corenswet. Keep an eye out though—guest stars Treat Williams, Gabrielle Carteris, Tray Chaney, Domenick Lombardozzi, Thaddeus Street, and Jermaine Crawford will be lurking around as well.

?How Can I Watch

The series is going to debut on Monday, April 25 on HBO. The series will also be available to stream on HBO Max.
