Netflix has released the official trailer for "Flint Town," the new 8-part documentary that takes an unflinching look at the policing system in Flint, Michigan, which is a city of approximately 100,000 citizens with a police department that only has 98 officers.

Filmed over two years during the aftermath of the devastating Flint water crisis, the docu-series is told through the eyes of the city's police department. Filmmakers have been embedded with officers as they are left trying to put back together the pieces of a broken and increasingly distrustful community. It's a powder keg of poverty, anger, and racial tension. And it could possibly become an epidemic around the country.

From the executive producers of "True Detective" and "Deadliest Catch," the Netflix documentary series is scheduled to premiere on March 2nd.

In the aftermath of the Flint water crisis, Flint Town takes an intimate look at the state of policing in America through the lens of the Flint Police Department.

Flint, Mich. is consistently named one of the most violent cities in America and the community is still grappling with the coverup of a citywide water contamination, leading to a massive distrust in law enforcement officials. Over the course of eight episodes, filmmakers embed with the police officers faced with infrastructure issues and decreasing resources as they risk their lives to protect and serve the community, while simultaneously struggling to gain their support.

Flint Town is produced in association with Anonymous Content; executive producers are Steve Golin, David Pritikin and P.G. Morgan; co-directors are Zackary Canepari, Jessica Dimmock and Drea Cooper.
