Enrique Murciano has a new agent…
The 48-year-old Cuban American actor has been cast as a series regular opposite leads Gabriel Basso and Luciane Buchanan in The Night Agent, Netflix’s political conspiracy thriller series.
Murciano, known for his work in Bloodline, appears on a roster of new cast additions that includes Hong Chau, DB Woodside, Fola Evans-Akingbola , Eve Harlow, Phoenix Raei and Sarah Desjardins
Created by Shawn Ryan, the series is based on author Matthew Quirk’s 2019 New York Times bestseller.
The Night Agent is a sophisticated, character-based, action-thriller centering on Peter Sutherland (Basso), a low-level FBI agent who works in the basement of the White House, manning a phone that never rings — until the night that it does, propelling him into a fast moving and dangerous conspiracy that ultimately leads all the way to the Oval Office.
Murciano plays Ben Almora, the measured, steady hand who guides the Secret Service in the White House.
Seth Gordon is set to direct the first two episodes of the series, which hails from Sony Pictures Television Studios, where Ryan and Gordon are under overall deals. Ryan will serve as showrunner of the 10-episode series, which he’ll executive produce via his MiddKid Productions. Gordon will executive produce through his Exhibit A banner.
