There's a new mini-series coming your way this summer. It's called Show Me a Hero, and the responsible for adapting it to the telly (it's originally a book by Lisa Belkin) is The Wire's David Simon. The six-part series is set in New York during the late '80s and documents the tensions around social housing. Oh, and Winona Ryder's in it.

It premieres August 16th on HBO, and mid-August on Sky Atlantic in the UK. Watch the trailer below.
