With his acclaimed 1991 feature film debut "Boyz n the Hood," filmmaker John Singleton depicted the harsh realities of living in South Central Los Angeles. 26 years later and Singleton is returning to those same L.A. neighborhoods -- but this time, it's for a television drama that will be chronicling the violent rise of the crack cocaine epidemic in the early 1980s.

Check out the official trailer for Singleton's upcoming ten-episode FX series "Snowfall," in which several characters -- a novice drug dealer (Damson Idris), a Mexican wrestler (Sergio Peris-Mencheta), a rogue CIA agent (Carter Hudson), and the daughter of a Mexican crime lord (Emily Rios) -- find themselves enmeshed in the Los Angeles drug trade.

Co-created and executive produced by Singleton alongside Eric Amadio and Dave Andron (Justified), the series is set to premiere on Wednesday, July 5th on FX.

Los Angeles. 1983. A storm is coming and its name is cocaine. Snowfall is a one-hour drama set against the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic and its ultimate radical impact on the culture as we know it.

The story follows numerous characters on a violent collision course, including: Franklin Saint (Damson Idris), young street entrepreneur on a quest for power; Gustavo Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta), a Mexican wrestler caught up in a power struggle within a crime family; Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson), a CIA operative running from a dark past who begins an off-book operation to fund the Nicaraguan Contras; and Lucia Villanueva (Emily Rios), the self-possessed daughter of a Mexican crime lord.
