USA Network is developing “Connoisseur,” an hourlong drama series in which “Star Trek” film regular John Cho will star.
Cho would play Clay Park, a smart con artist who dupes the wealthy into paying millions for fake wine. His hustle forces him into a deadly bargain with an organized crime syndicate, puts him in the cross-hairs of the FBI, and unearths a tragedy that fractured his family years ago in Korea.
“Connoisseur” would mark Cho’s first series regular role following the short-lived comedy “Selfie”. “Hand of God” creator Ben Watkins, “Donnie Darko” actor Gary Lundy and Cho will all serve as executive producers with Lundy writing the script. Eli Dansky will also produce.
