"Rebel"
Premieres Tuesday, March 28 at 9PM ET/PT on BET

           “Rebel” takes on the unique and complicated relationship the Black community faces with police officers. 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.

          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. REBEL is a hard-hitting, gritty, complicated and morally ambiguous drama series, featuring many issues ripped from the headlines.
 

          “Rebel” features 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).
