Rosario Dawson To Star In And Produce USA Network Drama Pilot, 'Briarpatch'

Rosario Dawson has been selected for the lead role in the USA Network drama pilot Briarpatch. 

It seems as if Dawson decided to go with a cable role as she was said earlier in the year to be one of the most in-demand actresses of broadcast pilot season.

The description reads: Based on the Ross Thomas novel of the same name, Dawson will portray Allegra “Pick” Dill, “a tenacious and highly-skilled investigator working in Washington, D.C. for a young, ambitious senator. When her ten-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.”

Mostly known for her film work, this would be Dawson’s first starring role on a network television series. She currently stars in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Netflix shows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders.
