Pakistani-American college student Nasir "Naz" Khan, who lives with his parents in Queens, NY, takes his father's taxi to go a party in Manhattan. But what starts as a perfect night for Naz becomes a nightmare when he's arrested for murder.

The eight-part HBO limited series "The Night Of", created by Steven Zaillian ("Schindler's List," "American Gangster") and Richard Price ("The Color of Money," HBO's "The Wire"), will debut this summer, exclusively on HBO. Starring John Turturro ("Fading Gigolo," "O Brother, Where Art Thou?") and Riz Ahmed ("Nightcrawler"), and directed by Steven Zaillian (from teleplays by Price and Zaillian), the limited series delves into the intricacies of a complex New York City murder case with cultural and political overtones. 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.
