Seven Seconds, Harriet and The Nevers star Zackary Momoh has joined the cast of AMC‘s upcoming drama series The Driver.

The show stars Giancarlo Esposito as a taxi driver whose life is turned upside down when he agrees to chauffeur a New Orleans-based Zimbabwean gangster played by Momoh.

The Driver is set to launch on AMC and AMC+ and due to go into production in August. The series comes from creators Danny Brocklehurst and Sunu Gonera. Theo Travers serves as showrunner.

'The Driver' is a remake of the 2014 British drama of the same name.

In 2014, The Driver aired as a three-part, BBC original. It was created by Brocklehurst with Jim Poyser and produced by It’s a Sin and Years and Years banner Red Production.

Like its remake, the series followed David Morrissey as a taxi driver employed by a criminal gang.

The series is Zackary Momoh's latest television project.
