Rosario Dawson is set to star in the lead role in USA Network’s new hourlong pilot “Briarpatch” at Universal Cable Productions, Anonymous Content and Paramount Television.
Written by Andy Greenwald and based on the Ross Thomas novel, the story follows Allegra ‘Pick’ Dill (Dawson), a highly-skilled investigator working in Washington, DC for a young, ambitious Senator.
When her homicide detective younger sister is killed by a car bomb, Allegra returns to her corrupt Texas hometown to find the killer – and in the process begins exploring a past she long sought to bury.
Dawson, Greenwald, Chad Hamilton and “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail will all executive produce.
