Stephen Silver selects Philly D.A. as one of top five films at Sundance.
Ahead of the eight-part series arrival on April 20th, Rolling Stone has an exclusive clip that gives viewers an inside look into Krasner’s office.
“[An] admirably complex and captivating eight-part series… There are no easy answers, only difficult choices, and “Philly D.A.” is at its most powerful when it reckons with the passion and discord in that space. From the outset, the series makes clear it will not be a hagiography of Krasner, a gripping study of the rippling fabric of a changing city as it shakes out the past in front of our eyes.”
“[The] first two episodes mark an extraordinarily promising start for the series, which boasts impressive access to Larry Krasner’s Philadelphia district attorney’s office and a nuanced approach that works hard to give this specific situation universal ripples.

“Through Philly D.A., we are able to bring the public behind the scenes of this pivotal and often opaque institution and to create a 360-degree portrait of our city in the midst of change. We’re thrilled to show the series to audiences for the first time at Sundance.”
“Philly D.A. is a gripping all-access look at a politician’s efforts to overturn an oppressive political system.”
