Arguably, one of the greatest living actors of the modern era is Giancarlo Esposito. Thanks to memorable roles in films like Do The Right Thing and TV shows like Better Call Saul, Esposito has risen to the top of many movie fans’ top ten lists. Up next, the actor is set to lead the case of a new drama series in the works at Netflix, according to Deadline.
The series, titled Jigsaw, pulls inspiration from real-life drama. During Hurricane Sandy in 2012, $70 billion in bonds went missing in downtown Manhattan. Per the initial report, Jigsaw will tell that story in a “nonlinear approach […] in a way where viewers are in control.” The series has already begun production in Netflix’s new production studio in Brooklyn.

The series hails from author Eric Garcia (Matchstick Men), who will also serve as showrunner and executive producer. Oscar-winner Ridley Scott will also executive produce the series via his Scott Free production banner. Fred Berger (Distant), Jordan Sheehan (Diplomacy), and Justin Levy (Snowy) are on board to produce as well.
Giancarlo Esposito recently wowed Star Wars fans as Moff Gideon in the Disney+ series The Mandalorian. Moreover, the actor also portrays the corrupt Stan Edgar in Amazon Prime’s superhero series The Boys. Up next, Esposito will appear alongside Josh Hutcherson and Tim Blake Nelson in The Long Way Home.
