Peacock shared the first official look of Will Packer and Kevin Hart’s upcoming crime drama limited series Fight Night: The Million Dollar Heist this week (June 12th). Click inside to check out the teaser!

Based on the acclaimed iHeart true-crime podcast, Fight Night: The Million Dollar Heist follows the infamous story of how an armed robbery on the night of Muhammad Ali’s historic 1970 comeback fight changed not only one man’s life but ultimately transformed Atlanta into the “Black Mecca.”

When a hustler named Chicken Man hosts an afterparty to celebrate the fight with a guest list of the country’s wealthiest, the night ends with the most brazen criminal underworld heist in Atlanta’s history. Suspected of masterminding the crime, Chicken Man is hellbent on clearing his name but must convince his old adversary, J.D. Hudson, one of the first Black detectives in the city’s desegregated police force, who is tasked with bringing those responsible to justice.

The highly anticipated series stars Kevin Hart (the Jumanji film franchise, Central Intelligence, Night School) as Chicken Man, Samuel L. Jackson (Coach Carter, Snakes on a Plane, Kingsman: The Secret Service) as Frank Moten, Taraji P. Henson (Baby Boy, Hustle & Flow, The Color Purple) as Vivian Thomas, Don Cheadle (the Ocean’s trilogy, Crash, Hotel Rwanda) as JD Hudson and Terrence Howard (Dead Presidents, Four Brothers, Hustle & Flow) as Cadillac Richie. Key guest stars include Chloe Bailey, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Dexter Darden, Lori Harvey and Sinqua Walls.

Shaye Ogbonna (Penguin, The Chi, God’s Country) created and wrote the series and shared showrunner responsibilities with Jason Horwitch (Echo 3, The Calling). Ogbonna and Horwitch were both also executive producers alongside Kevin Hart, Will Packer and Sabrina Wind (Will Packer Media), Bryan Smiley and Mike Stein (Hartbeat), Conal Byrne and Carrie Lieberman (iHeartPodcasts), Jeff Keating (Doghouse Pictures, LLC), Lars Jacobson, Erika L. Johnson and Mike Daniels. Craig Brewer (Empire, Dolemite Is My Name) aided in executive producer duties and also directed four episodes of the series.
