Well, this is going to be interesting! ~ V

The Hulu docuseries, produced by ABC News Studios in association with Kaepernick Media, unravels how a deadly hotel shooting changes a family and community in the face of its police force.

Hulu has released a first look at Colin Kaepernick’s latest project, docuseries Killing County.

Directed by Michaela Dowd, narrated by André Holland and executive produced by Kaepernick and Robe Imbriano, the series centers on the police force in Bakersfield, California, and the death of Jorge Ramirez in 2013 following a shootout that included several police officers in a hotel parking lot.

It’s described by Kaepernick as “one of the most powerful projects I’ve been involved with,” and seeks to unpack how Ramirez — an informant for the Bakersfield Police Department, according to his family — and his death speaks to a larger culture of corruption and violence within the town and its police force.

Killing County streams on Hulu Feb. 3.
