Franklin Saint is a young entrepreneur on a quest for power and money, Gustavo Zapata is a Mexican wrestler struggling with a family feud, Teddy McDonald is a CIA operative who begins an off-book operation to fund the Nicaraguan Contras and Luica Villanueva, the daughter of a Mexican crime lord, plays the main characters whose lives cross paths in season 1 as each of them follow their desires.
In season 2, these individuals' lives are influenced by the crack-cocaine outbreak. Some of them try to use this to manipulate people around for their benefit while others struggle.
Season 3 of the series is set in the summer of 1984 with crack cocaine spreading its destructive roots across South Central Los Angeles. Sergeant Andre Wright (Marcus Henderson) is determined to nab his neighbor Saint (Damson Idris) who he believes might soon become a drug lord. While the police is working hard to prevent the entry of crack cocaine, Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson) and the CIA are doing everything they can in their power to ensure that the crack cocaine is free-flowing in LA. They are doing this to fund the war against communism in Central America.

The show was created by John Singleton, Eric Amadio and Dave Andron. The late John Singleton is best known for directing the cult classic 1991 film 'Boyz n the Hood' for which he had also been nominated for Best Director Academy Award.
The trailer of the show was released May 29 and it continues to document the journey of the four main characters. All they would need to do is distribute the cocaine, deliver and collect the cash in turn. However, the problem is that the "DEA is on a rampage". Meaning, distributing crack just got a lot more dangerous and violent.
At the premiere of the third season of 'Snowfall', the cast and crew of the FX show remembered their late co-producer and co-creator John Singleton. He died in April after suffering from a stroke, and this occurred while the third season was still in production. Actress Angela Lewis called him the "heart of the show", while the star of the show Damson Idris said Singleton had left the show in great shape and great hands.
He also added, "The crew is fully diverse. He hand-picked everyone and he empowered people. He left people so many codes and he left us with the confidence to go on." Actor Isaiah John added to this and said Singleton considered 'Snowfall' his baby. He added, "He always said that this story has never been told. And he wanted to be the one to tell that story."
