Parish Teaser Trailer: Giancarlo Esposito Stars in AMC’s New Crime Thriller

AMC Networks has unveiled the trailer for the Giancarlo Esposito-led crime thriller Parish. Set to hit AMC and AMC+ this March, the teaser trailer has so far promised an action-packed thriller from the Breaking Bad actor. 

In the newly released video titled “Our Father, Who Art in Heaven…,” Esposito’s character is seen praying after an unfortunate series of events led him to completely lose control over his own life. 

“Lead us not into temptation, and deliver us from evil,” Esposito says in the trailer. 

In addition to starring in the upcoming series, the award-winning actor also served as Parish’s executive producer alongside Danny Brocklehurst, Jim Poyser, Jolyon Symonds, David Morrissey, Josh Kesselman, Danny Sherman, Barry Jossen, Tana Jamieson, Theo Travers, and Nicola Shindler.

What is Parish about?

The six-episode crime thriller is based on Brocklehurst and Poyser’s hit UK series The Driver. Hailing from showrunners Eduardo Javier Canto and Ryan Maldonado, Parish follows the titular character, Gracian Parish, who will soon find himself in a perilous situation involving a criminal syndicate. 

The synopsis for Parish reads: “In the series, Esposito stars as Gracian “Gray” Parish, 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.”

Who else is involved in Parish?

Apart from Esposito, Parish boasts an impressive cast with Doctor Sleep actor Zackary Momoh starring as Zimbabwean gangster The Horse. Paula Malcomson (The Hunger Games) will also star in the forthcoming series as Gray’s wife Rose. 

The rest of the cast includes Scream’s Skeet Ulrich as Colin, Wallander’s Bonnie Mbuli as Shamiso Tongai, Hawkeye’s Ivan Mbakop as Zenzo, Chicago Fire’s Dax Rey as Luke, and Black-ish’s Arica Himmel as Gray and Rose’s daughter Makayla. 

The West Wing’s Bradley Whitford will also star in the series in a recurring role. He will reportedly portray Anton. Moreover, Orphan Black actress Amanda Brugel will guest star in the series as Sister Anne.
