HBO has released the trailer for its upcoming 6 part mini-series called “Show Me a Hero, ” based on the book of that name. The series, about race relations in Yonkers, is produced by the creator of the hit HBO show “The Wire, ” David Simon.

Based on NY Times writer Lisa Belkin’s 1999, the series will feature Winona Ryder, Jim Belushi, Oscar Isaac, Jon Bernthal, Catherine Keener, Alfred Molina and Peter Riegert.

Belkin’s book penetrated the prejudices, myths, and heated emotions, as she showed how a proposal to build scattered-site public housing in a middle-class neighborhood in Yonkers, in Westchester County, NY, nearly destroyed an entire city and forever changed the lives of many of its citizens.
