On June 9, 2022, the energy was high at the New York City AMC Theaters on 34th Street in Midtown Manhattan, where the big screen projected images of the beginning of something spectacular coming to television. The cast and executives were the first to witness this new drama series. 

When destiny calls, you answer, says renowned writer-producer and director Sura Khan of the new television series Sura Khan’s The Chambers – In God We trust. The series is a concept never seen before on television, taking viewers behind the scenes of the traditional courtroom visual to the inside workings of a supreme court judge. His staff is composed of Chief of staff – Fred Kramer, played by actor Anthony LeDonne. Political Advisor Matt Canley – Played By Paul Kevins; Media Relations Officer Angela backer – Played by Adre Mayer, Executive Assistant Marsha Owens – Played by Rebi Paganini and Law Clerks Carson Edelman, Eddie Hayes and Ryan Santiago played by Charles Osborne, Kevin Richard Best, and Ralphy Lopez.

Director/Writer Sura Khan

The pilot starts with an exciting and fast-paced storyline as the staff tackles breaking a news story that puts Judge Kimble on the cover of the early edition of the news. Kimble’s Executive assistant Marsha makes a statement while having dinner on a date with Dan, a gentleman Marsha has seen around the court. Still, she is unaware that he is a reporter for the Daily Justice Newspaper. Marsha makes a statement that puts herself and the Judge at the center of controversy in an already challenging political environment.                                    

One of the many genius ideas of the creator Sura Khan was to make ground zero of the supreme court operate within a fictitious municipality called State City. Khan added another state to the United States, where he gets to write the constitution that governs that territory. A fantastic movie for the series that can tackle social issues and many other factors rarely seen from this perspective by the viewing public.

You are encouraged to look at the trending trailer on YouTube to get a feel of where Khan is leading this new drama series. Also, The Creators encourage viewers to subscribe to the series website to get information and stay updated about the series with information such as air date streaming, cable TV platforms, etc.

Congratulation to Creator Sura Khan, Producer Bobby Bostick, Associate Producer Kenny Sattaur and Terri Patterson, and the fantastic team of filmmakers of Sura Khan’s The Chambers – In God We Trust. COMING SOON!!
