"Rebel" (TV show) is a drama series on BET that 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" Cole, 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 leaves the force after being under an intense Internal Affairs/criminal investigation for shooting her partner in the hopes of stopping him from gunning down her little brother. She is forced to take matters into her own hands and become a private investigator and a champion for her community. She struggles with her brother's murder while defending herself from the dirty cops who are out for revenge. 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.

The series examines the conflicted relationship officers of color have with their jobs at a time when police forces are rife with brutality and misconduct. This hard-hitting, gritty, complicated and morally ambiguous drama series features many issues ripped from the headlines.

The cast also includes Giancarlo Esposito as Lieutenant Charles Gold, Rebel's friend and mentor; Mykelti Williamson as Rene Knight, Rebel's father); Cliff "Method Man" Smith as TJ, Rebel's ex-husband; LaTanya Richardson as Detective Traylynn Jones, Mack's new partner; and Brandon Quinn as Mack, Rebel's former partner.

"Rebel" is produced by MarVista Entertainment for BET and executive produced and directed by John Singleton. Dallas Jackson and Randy Huggins are also executive producers. Music for the pilot was composed by Jill Scott.
