Snowfall Features Kansas City Baseball Cap In Drama Exploring Roots Of The Crack Epidemic

Quick local entertainment news connection that is more organic than most of the canned news broadcast by the other local stations. A KICK-ASS denizen of our blog community noticed a bit of local memorabilia is a highly acclaimed new TV show.

Snowfall is an American crime drama television series created by John Singleton, Eric Amadio and Dave Andron. Set in 1983 Los Angeles, the series revolves around the first crack epidemic and its impact on the culture of the city. The series follows the stories of several characters whose lives are doomed to intersect: 19-year-old drug dealer Franklin Saint, Mexican luchador Gustavo "El Oso" Zapata, CIA operative Teddy McDonald, and Lucia Villanueva, the daughter of a Mexican crime boss.

CIA operative Teddy McDonald is played by Carter Hudson and our blog community notices that he wears the KC cap for most of the show . . . Which is kind of a nice shout out and maybe a reference to intelligence community pretty much stretching from the heartland and far beyond.

Altogether, the drama has great reviews and might be worth a look if only to get a glimpse of the vintage local gear.

Well Great,,,,,

Now to be Fair, I've never seen this new show.

But thru my 45 years of Hollywood Watching TV Experience, majority of these shows start off fairly decent than run out of decent content to actually Produce, and in the end they get off track of what their original content was supposed to be about.

Seen this thru the 1970's & 1980's with all the writers strikes that took place and eventually the Show or Series dived into the Abyss and lost views as their content went down some Rabbit Hole ,,,,,,,,

I can remember the days of the early 1980's back when MIAMI VICE 1st Aired as well for the 1st couple years it was alright then it too dived into the Rabbit Hole of the Abyss and went to utter shit !

I hope this News series doesn't do the usual HOLLYWOOD attempt to Glorify the Drug Culture that has ruined this nation and cost hundreds of thousands of lives !!!

I never watched that Cable show Breaking Badd as usual HOLLYWOOD attempted to Glorify that Drug Culture as some type of cool thing that all young people should follow as if its some kind of Hip thing to be COOL,,,,,,,,,,,,

We'll see,,, could get interesting !!!

OK time to go back watching my, I Love Lucy and Mayberry RFD :) !!!

Oppps forgot The Rockford Files comes on in bit too :) !!!

Actually the series is great , they had to show the background and lead up to the advent of both blow and crack in California . The DEA agent with the KC cap is also a really good actor .
