This reimagining of American Gigolo centers on Julian Kaye (Jon Bernthal), who has spent 15 years in prison after being wrongly convicted of murder. A newly free man, Kaye tries to find his place in society and rekindle a relationship with his former lover, Michelle (Gretchen Mol). Meanwhile, Detective Sunday (Rosie O’Donnell) searches for the truth about the conspiracy that sent Kaye to jail.

“Expect heightened mystery, danger and desires as Jon Bernthal takes the movie’s iconic character on a contemporary, exhilarating journey,” executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer told Entertainment Weekly.

Other cast members include Wayne Brady, Leland Orser, Lizzie Brocheré, Gabriel LaBelle and more.
