Do We Have A Trailer?

Yes, the makers have released the highly awaited official trailer of Sugar on the internet. The trailer runs for a duration of two minutes and 15 seconds and captures some of the most intense and genre-defying scenes in order to amp up the buzz for the audience. We see Sugar driving around in a car on the roads of California with his pet dog.

In the voice-over, he calls himself ‘one of the good guys.’ Suddenly, a fight sequence involving him shows up and we see the blood-smeared face of Sugara. The voiceover then says, ‘But good and bad can be in the eye of the beholder.’

Subsequently, he meets the Hollywood producer Jonathan Siegel who gives him a task to find out his granddaughter named Olivia Siegel who is missing. During his pursuit of the missing girl, Sugar comes across a mysterious lady named Melanie Mackie (played by Amy Ryan who is famous for her role in The Office).

Midway through the trailer, we realize that while John is looking for the girl, someone has been chasing and keeping an eye on him. The trailer consists of an interesting montage of shots from the series that look really cool and exciting. Overall, it gives a good peek into a story that is action-packed, thrilling, and mysterious.


Sugar is created by the same person who co-directed the Universally acclaimed Brazilian 2002 action crime film City of God. This makes the series more interesting to watch for the people who are aware of his work. Another name associated with Sugar is Mark Protosevich who has written some of the most interesting films of the past two decades. This includes Thor and I Am Legend among others.

The involvement of these two interesting talents with a proven and successful body of work makes Sugar stand out in the sea of shows coming out every other week on different streaming platforms. Colin, who is a massive star, brings his charm into the series which is about a detective story on the surface. However, looking at the trailer, we realize that the story is much more than that. Colin Ferrell provides a perfect mix of vulnerability and toughness that is required to play the role of a detective.

His involvement further elevates the hype and excitement around the series. Another interesting thing is that he is an executive producer on the series which means that he saw something in it. This is the reason why he got involved and put his money also in the project apart from starring in it.

Ever since the trailer dropped, fans have been eagerly waiting for the series with waited breath as it has a mysterious and engaging storyline. The trailer has amped up our excitement without revealing or spoiling the plot by giving away too much information.
