Raves: THE NIGHT OF

CRAVETV RAVES: THE NIGHT OF

On the heels of garnering 13 nominations for the 69th EMMY® AWARDS, including a nomination for Outstanding Limited Series and Outstanding Lead Actor nods for series stars Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler) and John Turturro (O Brother, Where Art Thou), THE NIGHT OF starts streaming today as part of CraveTV’s #iCraveFridays weekly roll-out of new content.

The 8-part limited series from HBO was created by Steven Zaillian (Oscar winner, Best Adapted Screenplay, Schindler’s List) and Richard Price (THE WIRE, Oscar nominee, Best Adapted Screenplay).
All eight episodes were directed by Steven Zaillian from screenplays by Price and Zaillian, exploring the intricacies of a complex New York City murder case with cultural and political overtones. THE NIGHT OF is based on Peter Moffat’s British serial CRIMINAL JUSTICE, which won two BAFTAs and an International Emmy Award for Best Actor, Ben Whishaw. The story examines the police investigation, the legal proceedings, the criminal justice system and the feral purgatory of Rikers Island, where the accused await trial for felony crimes. THE NIGHT OF debuted on HBO Canada on June 24, 2016 and aired its final episode on August 28, 2016.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR THE NIGHT OF:

“It’s a very meaty deal, this entertaining and invigorating crime drama . . . a must see.” (John Doyle, The Globe and Mail)

“THE NIGHT OF expends its energy tracking a single murder case and its considerable ripple effects. Along the way, stars John Turturro and Riz Ahmed deliver marvelous, intensely felt performances.” (The Toronto Star)

“ . . . one of the best dramas the U.S. premium-cable network has produced in several years . . . a crime-and-punishment yarn that oozes New York attitude out of every scene and syllable.” (Brad Oswald, Winnipeg Free Press)

“The early episodes have a theater-like intimacy, and they pay close attention to the particulars of arrest and processing.” (James Poniewozik, The New York Times)

“THE NIGHT OF is commandingly good, gripping television, a high point of the summer, and likely the entire year.” (Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair)

“HBO’s latest glossy crime show is powerful, tense, and a rare examination of what it’s really like to be arrested in America.” (Harry Cheadle, Vice)

The unfairness of the system is clear as day, whatever the outcome of Naz’s trial and before we even get to what happens during his long wait for it at Riker’s Island prison (which the rest of the series masterfully depicts) . . . it’s a good job shows like these have primed our detective skills, because new possibilities creep in with every pointed and claustrophobic scene. It’s time to start theorising: a slowly unfolding crime drama is just the ticket as the nights start to draw in.” (Filipa Jodelka, The Guardian)
