The story follows numerous characters on a violent collision course, including: Franklin Saint (Damson Idris), young street entrepreneur on a quest for power; Gustavo Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta), a Mexican wrestler caught up in a power struggle within a crime family; Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson), a CIA operative running from a dark past who begins an off-book operation to fund the Nicaraguan Contras; and Luica Villanueva (Emily Rios), the self-possessed daughter of a Mexican crime lord.

Snowfall is Executive Produced by Dave Andron (Justified, Knight Rider), Thomas Schlamme (The West Wing, The Americans), John Singleton (Boyz n the Hood, Four Brothers, 2 Fast 2 Furious), Eric Amadio (After Sex, Stuntmen), Michael London (Sideways, House of Sand and Fog), and Trevor Engelson (Remember Me, All About Steve).

An outsider since birth, he has struggled his whole life to find somewhere to belong. Gustavo will finally find a place in a Los Angeles crime family that values his brutal ways - but belonging will cost him more than he can imagine.
