"The Night Of"
Premieres Sunday, July 10 at 9 PM ET/PT on HBO
 
         Pakistani-American college student Nasir “Naz” Khan, who lives with his parents in Queens, NY, takes his father’s taxi to go a party in Manhattan. But what starts as a perfect night for Naz becomes a nightmare when he’s arrested for murder.

          Starring John Turturro (“Fading Gigolo,” “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”) and Riz Ahmed (“Nightcrawler”), the show delves into the intricacies of a complex New York City murder case with cultural and political overtones. The story examines the police investigation, the legal proceedings, the criminal justice system and Rikers Island, where the accused await trial.
