Giancarlo Esposito, known for his roles in Breaking Bad, The Boys and The Mandolorian, will soon be seen in Jigsaw, Ridley Scott and Eric Garcia's heist drama for Netflix.
Deadline writes that the show is loosely based on a real-life event where bonds worth $70 million went missing in Manhattan during Hurricane Sandy.
According to Netflix, the eight-episode series will have a "nonlinear approach to storytelling in a way where viewers are in control." The plot will range from 24 years to a year before the heist took place.
Paz Vega, Rufus Sewell, Tati Gabrielle, Peter Mark Kendall, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney, Jordan Mendoza and Niousha Noor are also part of the cast.
Jigsaw is currently being shot at Netflix's Brooklyn studio. A release date is yet to be unveiled.
Variety reports that Esposito will be seen as Leo Pap, who began a life of crime at a very young age. The character is described as "a natural leader", who is "whip-smart, intense and driven."
Garcia serves as showrunnner as well as the executive producer. Jose Padilha directs the first two episodes of the series. Scott, David W Zucker and Jordan Sheehan are executive producers via Scott Free Productions.
