Ramon Rodriguez To Star in PRISM on NBC
Ramon Rodriguez is set to star opposite Malin Akerman in NBC's legal drama pilot Prism, according to Deadline.
The drama hails from Daniel and Ben Barnz's We're Not Brothers Productions, Carol Mendelsohn and Julie Weitz. Daniel Barnz wrote and will also direct the series.
Prism is inspired by Rashomon, the 1950 Japanese period psychological thriller directed by Akira Kurosawa. Prism is described as a provocative exploration of a murder trial in which every episode is told through the perspective of a different key person involved.
Each new version of the facts ratchets up the mystery and the suspense, calling into question everything we have seen so far and asking, Is the right person on trial? Driven by an ensemble of complicated characters, the show lets the audience ask if truth matters less than who can tell the most compelling story.
Rodriguez will play hard-hitting prosecutor Eduarto Guaty. Mykelti Williamson co-stars in the series.
Daniel Barnz and Ben Barnz executive produce along with Mendelsohn and Weitz. Universal TV produces in association with We're Not Brothers and Carol Mendelsohn Prods.
Rodriguez is best known for his recurring roles on The Affair, The Defenders and Iron Fist.
