Paz Vega has a puzzling future…
Netflix has ordered the heist drama Jigsaw, starring the 45-year-old Spanish actress, to series.
Spanning 24 years, the series centers around the largest heist ever attempted, and the vengeance, scheming, loyalties, and betrayals that surround it.
It’s loosely inspired by the real story where $70 billion dollars in bonds went missing in downtown Manhattan during Hurricane Sandy.
In addition to Vega, the series also stars Giancarlo Esposito, Rufus Sewell, Tati Gabrielle, Peter Mark Kendall, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney and Niousha Noor.
Jigsaw is currently filming at Netflix Studios: Brooklyn. It is the first production at the streamer’s Bushwick studio.
Vega will portray Ava Mercer. An attorney by day, she is equally at home on a gun range or gallery show as she is in the courtroom. Although she plays things fast and loose, deep down she’s a passionate soul who will do anything to protect the few people close to her.
Erica Garcia created Jigsaw and will also serve as showrunner and executive producer. Jose Padilha will direct the first two episodes. Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker and Jordan Sheehan executive produce via Scott Free Productions along with Fred Berger, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, and Justin Levy of Automatik Entertainment and Russell Fine.
