From the creator of Mr Robot and executive producer of Homecoming, this stylish, atmospheric new crime thriller is based on the Ross Thomas novel of the same name and stars Rosario Dawson, Jay R. Ferguson, Edi Gathegi, Brian Geraghty, Kim Dickens, Alan Cumming and Ed Asner.
Briarpatch updates the pulp fiction genre for a new era and follows the determined and no-nonsense Allegra Dill (Rosario Dawson), an investigator working for a senator, who returns to her quirky hometown after her sister is murdered.
However, there is more than just a murder to deal with in the Texas border-town of San Bonifacio, as a search for a killer soon turns into an all-consuming fight to bring her corrupt hometown to its knees.
In the opening episode, Allegra Dill touches down at the San Bonifacio airport in Texas, but her return to her small hometown near the U.S.-Mexico border is almost surreal. Not only is her sister dead, but half the animals from the zoo have also escaped and are now loitering around town.
Felicity Dill was a local cop killed by a car bomb and Allegra is determined to find out who was behind the devastating attack on her sibling. This is a very personal murder case but, as familiar faces start to appear and unfamiliar individuals make their presence known, her initial inquiries start to unravel a complex web of lies, crimes and conspiracies.
Allegra soon realises that there is more to deal with in San Bonifacio than just her sister's murder.
