Mayor Dave Bing set to attend special screening of ABC’s new “Detroit 187” program
Detroit Mayor Dave Bing and the city’s interim police chief are tentatively scheduled to attend a special advanced screening of ABC’s newest crime drama, set in Detroit. The spokesman for the mayor says that the city did not request an invite to the screening but that representatives of the city would attend.
Some city officials as well as residents have voiced concerns over the negative portrayal of the city in such a public format and what it could do to hinder the city’s new growth and development. Detroit has long held a reputation for being a violent city and many are wondering if this new program will continue to uphold that image.
