Ramon Rodriguez is ready to bring his character’s dark side to television…
Fox has released the new promo for the network’s upcoming action-drama Gang Related, which stars the 34-year-old Puerto Rican actor.
Rodriguez portrays Detective Ryan Lopez, a rising star in Los Angeles’ elite Gang Task Force. What nobody knows is that long before he became a police officer, Ryan pledged allegiance to a powerful Latino gang called Los Angelicos.
When Ryan’s best friend and police partner is senselessly killed by a notorious gang member, he teams up with longtime Task Force member Cassius Green (RZA), who has been at the forefront of the city’s war on organized crime. Despite his profession, Ryan is still indebted to the gang’s leader Javier Acosta (Cliff Curtis), the father figure Ryan has tried to make proud his entire life and the man who masterminded his entry into the police force.
Gang Related also stars Rey Gallegos, Jay Hernandez, Sung Kang, Inbar Lavi, Terry O’Quinn and Shantel VanSanten.
Gang Related, which is scheduled to air at 9:00 pm on Tuesdays, premieres on May 20.
