USA Network has released the first trailer for its new series “Briarpatch,” a darkly comedic murder-mystery in which Rosario Dawson, Jay Ferguson, Edi Gathegi, Kim Dickens, and Brian Geraghty star.
Sparked by the mysterious death of her sister Felicity, Washington political fixer Allegra ‘Pickle’ Dill (Dawson) returns home to the small Texas town where she grew up.
Tenacious, direct, and in defiance of local police captain Gene Colder (Geraghty), Dill begins to interrogate old childhood acquaintances, like estate attorney A.D. Singe (Gathegi) and the self-made mogul Jake Spivey (Ferguson), with hopes of finding answers.
As in all good mysteries, with every discovery she makes, more questions arise – like why are exotic zoo animals running wild all over town?
Created by Andy Greenwald, produced by “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail, and with a pilot directed by Ana Lily Amirpour (“A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night”), the series will have its world premiere at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival ahead of a 2020 launch on USA.
