In an interview with Music Choice, musician/actor Mack Wilds discussed working on the upcoming series, Shots Fired. In the upcoming Fox drama, Mack will be playing a young cop under major scrutiny after a racially charged shooting in a small North Carolina town. The series is said to give a different point of view on the police killings that have been going on recently.
“I think the world has such a view on, on us after the killings that have happened that, that they need I guess another view or another look to see the other side to see what it what it would feel like and just to bring up questions, thoughts, ideas to spark like genuine conversation on change.”
