„The Equalizer“ reloaded

The mysterious Robyn McCall (Queen Latifah) worked as a CIA agent for a long time. After a disappointment, she no longer wants to have anything to do with saving lives and only takes care of her daughter Delilah (Laya DeLeon Hayes). But the fate of the teenage girl Jewel, who is accused of murder, awakens her professional energy. With the help of some old friends, she appears as a death-defying avenger when the police fail.

Latifah inherits Denzel Washington

Latifah can not only sing (“Chicago”), accelerate (“New York Taxi”) and be funny (“22 Jump Street”), she also masters the action crime genre. In the series “The Equalizer”, musician and actress Queen Latifah slips into the role of the fit ex-CIA agent Robyn McCall. From 1985 to 1989 the Briton Edward Woodward gave the “equalizer”. As Robert McCall, he campaigned for the weak in four seasons. In 2014 and 2018, Denzel Washington followed in Woodward’s footsteps on two cinema adventures. The series features a reunion with Chris Noth, Mr. Big from the hit series “Sex And the City”.

“The Equalizer” will run from July 12th every Monday from 8:15 pm in double episodes on Sky One and is over Sky Ticket as well as Sky Q available on demand. A second season has already been confirmed.
