  • Lani Sogoyou as Audrey Ilunga

The crime drama series is rated TV-MA, meaning it’s meant to be viewed by mature audiences only. It was given this maturity rating for strong language, nudity, smoking, and graphic violence. Given what the show is about, this maturity rating seems appropriate. Overall, we wouldn’t recommend watching this series with young kids around.
