Rosario Dawson To Star In Drama Pilot ‘Briarpatch’ For USA Network

Rosario Dawson will star in USA Network’s drama pilot, “Briarpatch,” the network confirmed to TheWrap.

The pilot is based on Ross Thomas’ novel of the same name, which sees Dawson playing a gender-swapped version of Thomas’ lead character, Ben Dill.

Dawson, as Allegra “Pick” Dill, is a tenacious and highly-skilled investigator working in Washington, D.C. for a young, ambitious senator. When her 10-years-younger sister, a homicide detective, is killed by a car bomb, Allegra returns to her corrupt Texas hometown. What begins as a search for the murderer becomes a fraught and dangerous excavation of the past Allegra has long sought to bury.

Dawson will also serve as a producer. On TV, Dawson is known recently for playing Claire Temple on Netflix’s Marvel-produced shows including “Daredevil,” “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist,” “Jessica Jones” and “The Defenders.”

Andy Greenwald adapted “Briarpatch” for television and will executive produce along with “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail through his production company Esmail Corp and Anonymous Content’s Chad Hamilton. Universal Cable Productions and Paramount Television will produce.

    The Former CTO of Evil Corp was framed by Elliot for a security breakdown early in Season 1. His ouster paved the way for Tyrell Wellick's attempted ascension -- and, eventually, for Angela's employment with Evil Corp.

    Elliot's Mom (Vaishnavi Sharma)
