Strawberry Letter

Introducing: #Matter

Hi, Strawberry Letter fans! iHeartPodcasts and Shondaland are excited to announce #Matter – a brand new show about a father that intervenes in his son’s beating by police and later finds himself, his badly hurt son, and a wounded cop barricaded in a nearby restaurant. A shocking thriller but don’t just take our word for it. Check out the trailer to decide for yourself!

About #Matter: When Gerald Hayes witnesses his teenage son Niles’s brutal beating by police officers, a split-second decision leads to him being barricaded in a friend’s nearby restaurant with one of the officers. As the situation deteriorates and the press paints Niles as the offender, Gerald fights for justice for his son using the one tool at his disposal at that moment – social media. Told through the lens of an investigative journalist, Kate Bell takes us back to that fateful afternoon and its aftermath a year later through interviews, found surveillance footage, and more.
