NEW YORK -- BET's new scripted drama, REBEL, takes on the unique and complicated relationship the Black community faces with police officers. Directed by John Singleton, the series follows Rebel (Danielle Moné Truitt), a police officer who leaves the force after being under an intense Internal Affairs/criminal investigation for shooting her partner in the hopes of stopping him from gunning down her little brother. Continuing to fight crime as a P.I., Rebel struggles with her brother's murder while defending herself from the dirty cops who are out for revenge. REBEL premieres on BET, March 28th at 9:00PM ET/PT.

Featuring an all-star cast, including Giancarlo Esposito (Lieutenant Charles Gold, Rebel's friend and mentor), Mykelti Williamson (Rene Knight, Rebel's father), Cliff "Method Man" Smith (TJ, Rebel's ex-husband), LaTanya Richardson (Detective Traylynn Jones, Mack's New Partner), Brandon Quinn (Mack, Rebel's Former Partner), the series examines the conflicted relationship officers of color have with their jobs at a time when police forces are rife with brutality and misconduct.
