'Gang Related' star Ramon Rodriguez talks one memorable ride-along

As if the launch of 24: Live Another Day didn’t have enough drama on its own Monday night, Fox also used the two-hour premiere to debut a new trailer for its scripted summer series Gang Related, created by Chris Morgan, writer of The Fast and the Furious franchise since Tokyo Drift. (Watch the trailer below.)

Ramon Rodriguez (Need for Speed, The Wire) stars as Det. Ryan Lopez, a member of Los Angeles’ elite Gang Task Force who also has ties to one of the city’s most powerful gangs, the Los Angelicos. Its leader (Cliff Curtis) raised him as a son and masterminded his entry into the police force. “What I ended up learning on the gang side is that it’s incredibly organized — scary almost, how organized it can be,” Rodriguez tells EW. “There are cops, unfortunately, that are active gang members — or who are former gang members — and they’ve been caught and kicked out of the department. This happens. Gangs do send their members to the military to learn tactics and strategy to implement when they come back, which is the backstory of my character.” READ FULL STORY
