*The buzz is off the charts about “Gun Hill,” the new BET Premiere Cinema movie starring actor/writer/activist Larenz Tate.

From the producers of “New York Undercover,” and directed by Reggie Rock Bythewood, this high-powered cop drama is about identical twins on opposite sides of life: Trane, a cop, and Bird, a con. On one fateful night, Trane is killed. Bird assumes his identity and begins his own search for redemption. “Gun Hill” premieres Wednesday, July 2 at 9P/8C on BET.

Set in the mean streets of New York, this smart, gritty two-hour movie event features an ensemble cast of characters operating on all sides of the law, where no one is quite what they seem.

Trane is an undercover agent with a secret task force. Bird is a recently freed convict who plays by a different set of rules. However, when Trane is murdered, Bird assumes his brother’s identity seeking his brother’s murderer and a second chance at life. Grappling with morality, fatherhood and love, Gun Hill asks this question: Can someone who is unredeemable become redeemed?

Also written by Bythewood, “Gun Hill” also stars Emayatzy E. Corinealdi, Tawny Cypress, Aisha Hinds, Michael Aronov, Phyllis Yvonne Stickney Shanti Ashanti, Hisham Tawfiq and Daniel Stewart Sherman. The film is executive produced by Bythewood and Don Kurt.
