In the clip, Officer Marvin Sandeford (Santiago-Hudson) explains to Officer Andre Bentley (Lavel Schley) who the bosses are, and Deputy Mayor Sharpe meets the newly promoted boss of the 74th Precinct, Deputy Inspector Regina Haywood (Amanda Warren).
From the executive producers of NYPD Blue, East New York stars Warren as Deputy Inspector Regina Haywood, the newly promoted boss of the 74th Precinct in East New York, a working-class neighborhood on the edge of Brooklyn in the midst of social upheaval and the early seeds of gentrification. Haywood has a vision: She and the squad of the 74th Precinct will not only serve their community, they’ll also become part of it.
The premiere will also be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+ before moving to its regular 9-10 PM time slot October 9.
