The series has been based on the book by Baltimore Sun reporter Justin Fenton and chronicles the rise and fall of the Baltimore Police Department Gun Task Force. According to the trailer, drug prohibition and mass arrest have led to a moral collapse in the city, with officers regularly shaking down the local community and pocketing stolen cash. Sound familiar?

At the helm is King Richard director Reinaldo Marcus Green, and on-screen the series will star Jon Bernthal, Wunmi Mosaku, Jamie Hector, McKinley Belcher III, Darrell Britt-Gibson, Josh Charles, Dagmara Domińczyk, Rob Brown, Don Harvey, David Corenswet, Larry Mitchell, Ian Duff, Delaney Williams, and Lucas Van Engen.

We Own This City also includes guest stars Treat Williams, Gabrielle Carteris, Tray Chaney, Domenick Lombardozzi, Thaddeus Street, Jermaine Crawford, Nathan E. Corbett, Chris Clanton, Anwan Glover, Bobby Brown, Michael Salconi, Susan Rome, Kim Tuvin, and Maria Broom.

We Own The City is slated to premiere on Binge on April 26.
