AMC Networks dropped a tantalizing teaser trailer and a series of captivating first-look photos for its upcoming adrenaline-fueled drama, Parish. Slated to debut on both AMC and AMC+ in 2024, this six-episode series features Giancarlo Esposito as the lead actor and executive producer, who is well known for his exceptional performances in Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, and The Mandalorian, earning him an Emmy and SAG Award nomination, as well as a Critics Choice Award.
Gracian “Gray” Parish (Esposito), is a family man and proud owner of a luxury car service in New Orleans. After his son is violently murdered and his business collapses, an encounter with an old friend from his days as a wheelman resurfaces old habits, sending Gray on a high-stakes collision course with a violent criminal syndicate.
Parish was filmed in the heart of New Orleans and boasts an exceptional ensemble cast. Zachary Momoh (The Nevers, Harriet, Doctor Sleep) plays The Horse, a Zimbabwean gangster who is based in New Orleans.
Paula Malcomson (Watchmen, The Hunger Games, Ray Donovan) portrays Parish's wife, Rose, who is also a mother to their two children. Skeet Ulrich (Scream, Riverdale) takes on the role of Colin, an old acquaintance of Gray. Bonnie Mbuili (Invictus, Wallander) stars as Shamiso Tongai, The Horse's protective and intelligent older sister, while Ivan Mbakop (Hawkeye, Red Notice) plays Zenzo, The Horse's brother. Arica Himmel (Mixed-ish, Black-ish) portrays Makayla, Gray, and Rose's daughter, and Dax Rey (The Good Fight, Chicago Fire) is Luke, The Horse's son.
In addition to Esposito, the star-studded lineup includes Bradley Whitford (The West Wing, Get Out, The Handmaid’s Tale) as Anton, the suave face of industrial business in Louisiana, secretly leading a criminal organization. His clash with The Horse's human trafficking ring puts him in direct opposition to Parish. Amanda Brugel (The Handmaid’s Tale, Orphan Black) makes a guest appearance as Sister Anne, a character with a mysterious past intertwined with Gray.
Parish is based on the hit U.K. series The Driver, created by Danny Brocklehurst and Jim Poyser. It’s produced by AMC Studios, in association with A+E Studios and Thruline Entertainment. Brocklehurst serves as co-creator and executive producer.
Eduardo Canto and Ryan Maldonado serve as showrunners and executive producers; Giancarlo Esposito also executive produces alongside Brocklehurst, Poyser, Jolyon Symonds, and David Morrissey for Scribbler Films, Josh Kesselman, Danny Sherman, Barry Jossen, Tana Jamieson, Theo Travers and Red Production’s Nicola Shindler.
