FX Will Knock Your LIGHTS OUT

This coming Tuesday night, January 11th, the new FX series, Lights Out premieres at 10 p.m.

The series stars Holt McCallany as an aging former heavyweight boxing champion who struggles to find his identity and support his wife and three daughters after retiring from the ring. Financial problems leave him at a perilous crossroads – battling the urge to return to boxing or reluctantly accepting a job as a brutal and intimidating debt collector.
