You know her as detective Greggs on The Wire and the producer of the documentary Baltimore Rising which was inspired by the death of Freddie Frey, Sonja Sohn is back as Laverne on the Showtime show The Chi.
The Wire did a great job of bringing light to social issues in Baltimore, especially after the rise of police brutality. The Chi is hopefully looking to do the same.
“What I do know is that these folks care about Chicago in the same way that these folks cared about Baltimore with The Wire,” expressed Sohn. “I would say from what I know about this cast, they advocate for what they believe in.”
Catch The Chi on Showtime on Sunday, January 7 at 10 pm ET.
