American Gigolo S1

Exonerated after 15 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit, former gigolo Julian Kaye (Jon Bernthal from We Own This City) tries to pick up the pieces as the detective who put him behind bars works to unravel the mystery that led to his incarceration.

Screen Actors Guild winner Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire, Mozart in the Jungle), award winner Lizzie Brocheré (War of the Worlds, American Horror Story), and Gabriel LaBelle (The Fabelmans) co-star, along with Emmy winners Rosie O’Donnell (The L Word: Generation Q, Russian Doll) and Wayne Brady (The Good Fight, Whose Line Is It Anyway?)

Executive produced by 10-time Emmy winner Jerry Bruckheimer (Top Gun: Maverick, Pirates of the Caribbean, Bad Boys, CSI and more), the 18-rated Showtime series is created by Emmy nominee David Hollander (Ray Donovan), based on the iconic 1980 film by Oscar nominee Paul Schrader (The Card Counter, Taxi Driver).
