Giancarlo Esposito’s efficiency as cartel distributor Gustavo Fring was simply certainly one of so many the reason why Breaking Unhealthy and its prequel spinoff Higher Name Saul will go down as among the best crime franchises to ever grace the small display screen. Esposito was by no means lower than spellbinding anytime a scene known as for Fring, whose official enterprise as a Los Pollos Hermanos franchisee earned him the nickname “The Hen Man” amongst his fellow cartel killers. He dressed like a banker and was an operational genius, and I’m not the one fan who’s thought his character would make for an additional nice TV present spun off from the identical Breaking Unhealthy world.

Creator Vince Gilligan doesn’t appear thinking about increasing the franchise once more anytime quickly, perhaps ever, however AMC is however about to provide followers one other alternative to scratch that very same itch. Esposito is the star and govt producer of an upcoming six-episode restricted collection on AMC, a TV present titled Parish that can debut at a yet-to-be-revealed date in 2024. He’ll star as Gracian “Grey” Parish, a household man who owns a luxurious automotive service in New Orleans.

As AMC explains it, “After his son is violently murdered and his enterprise collapses, an encounter with an previous good friend from his days as a wheelman resurfaces previous habits, sending Grey on a high-stakes collision course with a violent legal syndicate.”

Shot on location in New Orleans, Parish relies on the hit UK TV present The Driver. Together with Esposito, the solid of Parish consists of Bradley Whitford, who performs a recurring character named Anton — the “charming and clever” face of Louisiana’s enterprise panorama who secretly heads up a legal enterprise. Furthermore, his dispute with a human trafficking ring places him at cross functions with Parish.

Primarily based on the solid, story, and the early look launched by AMC, it looks like that is going to be one other gritty, must-watch crime drama, particularly for Breaking Unhealthy followers like me. Take a look at the primary footage launched from AMC’s new Parish TV present under:
