(from USA's press release, January 2019) USA Network has picked up UCP and Paramount Television's new anthology drama series, with the first season titled Briarpatch. Starring Rosario Dawson (Rent, Seven Pounds), the first season is based on the Ross Thomas novel of the same name. It is written for television by Andy Greenwald, who will executive produce, along with Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail through his production company Esmail Corp, and Anonymous Content's Chad Hamilton. Ana Lily Amirpour directed the pilot and also served as an executive producer. In addition to her starring role, Dawson will serve as a producer on Briarpatch. Briarpatch follows Allegra Dill (Dawson), a dogged investigator returning 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. The season celebrates the beloved genres represented by Thomas' book -- a stylish blend of crime and pulp fiction -- while updating his sense of fun, danger and place for a new generation. The season also stars Jay R. Ferguson (Mad Men, The Romanoffs), Brian Geraghty (Chicago P.D., Ray Donovan), and Edi Gathegi (StartUp). The first season will shoot in Albuquerque, New Mexico.PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:· Alan Cumming as Clyde Brattle· Brian Geraghty as Gene Colder· Ed Asner as James Staghorne, Sr.· Edi Gathegi as A.D.
