Briarpatch Anticipation

Recommended Posts

USA Network has picked up a new crime anthology series from writer-executive producer Andy Greenwald, executive producer Sam Esmail, Universal Cable Prods. and Paramount Television. The first season, titled Briarpatch, starring Rosario Dawson, originally was ordered as a pilot directed by Ana Lily Amirpour.

In conjunction with the series order for Briarpatch, Greenwald has been signed into an overall deal at UCP.

Based on the Ross Thomas novel, Briarpatch was written for television by Greenwald, who executive produces alongside Mr. Robot and Homecoming‘s Esmail through his production company Esmail Corp and Anonymous Content’s Chad Hamilton. Amirpour also served as an executive producer on the pilot. In addition to her starring role, Dawson will be a producer on the series.

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.

From Deadline, a new crime anthology series at USA.
