Gun Hill is part of BET network's line-up of new original programming, which we've been following since the initial announcement last year. Now here's your first look.

Directed by Reggie "Rock" Bythewood (Biker Boyz), Gun Hill stars Larenz Tate portraying twin brothers, Trane and Bird, on opposite sides of the law.

The film also stars Emayatzy CorinealdiMichael Aronov, Phyllis Yvonne Stickney (How Stella Got Her Groove Night, Haitian Nights), Tawny Cypress (Heroes, Rescue Me) and Aisha Hinds (True Blood, Hawthorne).

Here's the full synopsis:

For the adults who go to the movies mostly on premiere weekends, this original film with beloved leading man Larenz Tate is sure to satisfy their fresh tastes. From the executive producers of New York Undercover, this high-powered cop drama is about identical twins on opposite sides of life: Trane, a cop, and Bird, a con. On one fateful night, Trane is killed. Bird assumes his identity and begins his own search for redemption. Set in the mean streets of New York, this smart, gritty two-hour movie event features an ensemble cast of characters operating on all sides of the law, where no one is quite what they seem. 

Glad to see Mr. Tate back on the screen, definitely looking forward to this. 

BET hasn't given an exact broadcast date yet.

Here's the preview trailer:
