‘Briarpatch’ Trailer: Rosario Dawson Stars in This Neo-Noir Thriller on USA

USA Network has released the trailer for its upcoming mystery-thriller anthology series Briarpatch.

I love a good murder mystery, and Briarpatch looks to fit the criteria I’m after. We’re in peak television right now, and some of the best shows keep the episode count under 16.

Ten episode seasons are usually able to tell a tightly-written story, so here’s hoping this is one of them. I dig what I see here of Rosario Dawson as Allegra Dill, so if this is an anthology series I hope that it’s Dill taking on a new murder/case every season.

Plot Synopsis:

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.

Briarpatch premieres on February 6, 2020 on USA Network.
