The drama, which was announced last summer, recounts the true story of 23-year-old Sean Bell, a Black man who was fatally shot by police officers in Queens, New York on Nov. 25, 2006. The shooting occurred just hours before Bell’s wedding, as he left his bachelor party at a Queens nightclub. The facility was being investigated by undercover officers over allegations that the owners were involved in an illegal prostitution ring. Police fired 50 bullets into Sean’s car, killing him and severely wounding two of his friends.
Jason Mitchell’s other credits include the films SuperFly (2018), Kong: Skull Island (2017), Mudbound (2017), and Straight Outta Compton (2015).
The actor exited The Chi in 2019 amid misconduct allegations.
