Subject: Raul Esparza ("SVU") joins NBC pilot
'Law & Order: SVU' Alum Raul Esparza Returns to NBC in Drama
by Lesley Goldberg
A month after saying farewell to Law & Order: SVU, Raul Esparza is
returning to NBC.
The actor and four-time Tony nominee has been tapped to co-star in the
network's drama pilot Suspicion.
From writer Jessica Goldberg (The Path) and based on the book by
Joseph Finder, the drama is described as a Hitchcockian thriller about
how far one man will go to save the people he loves. After Danny
Goldman (Derek Luke, 13 Reasons Why) accepts a handshake loan from his
new friend and millionaire neighbor, he gets a visit from the FBI and
learns that the decision is one he will regret for the rest of his
life. Coerced to work as an informant for the FBI to earn back his
freedom, Danny is forced to infiltrate a world of violence and
corruption while trying to protect his family.
