Adrianna Mitchell has scored a recurring role in season 4 and will play Tanosse, "a friend and former lover of Franklin's who has an inherent sensuality about her. She too grew up in the neighborhood but these two haven't seen each other in a while. Her older brother was a drug kingpin in the 70s and has since gone to prison for life. She has a working-class sophistication, charm and slight edge about her, but we can't quite tell if she's trustworthy."

Teddy questions Franklin's ability to control his operation, then suffers a setback of his own. Written by Enzo Mileti & Scott Wilson; Directed by Michael Lehman.
The third season, currently airing, is set in the summer of 1984. Crack cocaine is spreading like wildfire through South Central Los Angeles, continuing its path of destruction and changing the culture forever. Police are waking up to this growing epidemic, and Sergeant Andre Wright (Marcus Henderson) has set his sights on budding Kingpin and next door neighbor Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) and his people. While local law enforcement fights to stem the tide, Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson) and the CIA are working hard to make sure the flow of cocaine into LA doesn't stop. To continue funding the war against communism in Central America, Teddy will need to find new routes into the United States using Gustavo "El Oso" Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta) and what's left of the Villanueva family. As the stakes and losses continue to mount our players truly begin to understand the destructive force they have set in motion and must reexamine their own motivations and the cost of continuing forward from here.
Created by John Singleton & Eric Amadio and Dave Andron, Snowfall is executive produced by Singleton, Amadio, Andron, Thomas Schlamme, Michael London, Trevor Engelson and Walter Mosley. Andron serves as showrunner. The series is produced by FX Productions.
