On Sunday, HBO released the official trailer for their upcoming miniseries Show Me A Hero, created by David Simon of The Wire fame. The six-part series will be entirely based on the controversy surrounding the federally mandated construction of low-income housing in a predominantly white middle-class neighborhood of Yonkers during the 1980s.
The show will star Inside Llewyn Davis actor Oscar Isaac as the 28-year-old mayoral candidate Nick Wasicsko, as well as a powerhouse of supporting actors like Jim Belushi, Winona Ryder, Catherine Keener, Clarke Peters, and Alfred Molina.

And here’s trivia tidbit—the role Belushi takes on is former Yonkers Mayor Angelo Martinelli, who now serves as chairman of Today Media (the company that publishes Westchester Magazine!).
Parts 1 and 2 will debut starting at 8 pm on Sunday, August 16 on HBO.
