Rosario Dawson is set to star in the new drama series “Briarpatch” which has just been given a series order by USA Network.
Based on the novel by Ross Thomas, Dawson plays dogged investigator Allegra Dill who returns to her border-town Texas home after her sister is murdered.
What begins as a search for a killer turns into an all-consuming fight to bring her corrupt hometown to its knees. Jay R. Ferguson, Brian Geraghty and Edi Gathegi also star in the series which will be shot around Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Dawson and Andy Greenwald will executive produce alongside “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail, while celebrated filmmaker Ana Lily Amirpour directed the pilot and will also executive produce.
