AMC and AMC+ have announced the premiere date for Parish, the new action-packed crime drama series starring Giancarlo Esposito. Check out the trailer.
Parish stars Emmy® and SAG® Award nominee and Critics Choice® Award winner Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, The Mandalorian) as Gracián “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.
Shot on-location in New Orleans, the series costars Zachary Momoh (The Nevers, Harriet, Doctor Sleep) as The Horse, a New Orleans-based Zimbabwean gangster ; SAG® Award nominee Paula Malcomson (Watchmen, The Hunger Games, Ray Donovan) as Rose, Parish’s wife and mother to his two children; Skeet Ulrich (Scream, Riverdale) as Colin, an old acquaintance to Gray; Bonnie Mbuili (Invictus, Wallander) as Shamiso Tongai, The Horse’s smart and protective older sister; Ivan Mbakop (Hawkeye, Red Notice) as Zenzo, The Horse’s brother; Arica Himmel (Mixed-ish, Black-ish) as Makayla, Gray and Rose’s daughter; and Dax Rey (The Good Fight, Chicago Fire) as Luke, The Horse’s son.
Emmy®, SAG® and Critics Choice® Award winner Bradley Whitford (The West Wing, Get Out, The Handmaid’s Tale) recurs in the series as Anton, the charming and intelligent face of industrial business in Louisiana, who covertly heads a criminal organization. His dispute with The Horse’s human trafficking ring puts him at direct odds with Parish. And SAG® Award nominee Amanda Brugel (The Handmaid’s Tale, Orphan Black) guest stars as Sister Anne, who has a mysterious past with Gray.
