Silver Spring, MD (March 4, 2019) – After completing its successful series debut last July on UMC (Urban Movie Channel) – the first and leading streaming network for Black TV and film – UMC fan favorite “Bronx SIU” returns for a second season on Thursday, March 21, 2019. Starring Brian White (“Ray Donovan”), Shanti Lowry (“The Game”), Denise Boutte (“Meet the Browns”), and Ameer Baraka (“American Horror Story”), “Bronx SIU” follows the pursuits of homicide detective, Jimmy Blue (White) as he heads up an elite unit of investigators tasked with solving the boroughs most heinous crimes. After his life-threatening, on-the-job injury reveals a crooked cop in the SIU division, Season 2 follows the team as they work to seek out the mole and uncover the truth around Jimmy’s case. “Girlfriends” alum Khalil Kain joins the new season as “The Chief,” taking over the role for original cast member Miguel Núñez Jr.
