Snowfall Premiere

Packed houses enthusiastically viewed the premiere in Los Angeles, Dallas and New Orleans.  After the viewing there was a thick feeling in the room that everyone in the audience locked the date and time  into their calendars. Other than the few people who asked a question, it appeared that the rest of the audience sat with their mouths open, wondering, ‘where’s the rest?’  As Director John Singleton put it when asked in different ways about what is going to happen during the series, “Watch the show!!”.  It is going to blow your mind!
