Storyline

'Rebel' is an extraordinary take on the seminal police drama that examines the unique and conflicted relationship officers of color have with their jobs - at a time when police forces are rife with brutality and misconduct. Oakland police officer, Rebecca "Rebel" Knight, has always excelled by playing by the rules. She has always known that she must be better and smarter on the job because she is both black and female. After her brother is slain by police, Rebel soon becomes disillusioned with the system and is forced to take matters into her own hands and become a private investigator and a champion for her community. Caught between family loyalty and the fraternity in blue, Rebel's actions set in motion a cause-and-effect crisis that can't be undone. Written by BET

A quite nice polished dimond among other TV series.
21 August 2018 | by wino-80050See all my reviews

I came across this TV series quite by an accident - stated watch first episode and... by the end of the day I had already watched all episodes. It's good solid crime drama with unusuall way of showing it.
