Snowfall follows three characters on a violent collision course: Franklin Saint, a young street entrepreneur on a quest for power; Gustavo Zapata, a Mexican wrestler turned gangster in search of his American dream; and Logan Miller, a prominent family’s “black sheep” desperate to escape his father’s shadow.

The pilot is produced by FX Productions.

John Singleton directs from a script he wrote with Eric Amadio. Both executive produce with Dave Andron, Michael London of Groundswell Productions, and Trevor Engelson of Underground.

Production will begin this summer.
