Everything’s comin’ up Blanco-hot for Elizabeth Rodriguez…
The Latina actress, best known for her role as Carmen Morales on All My Children, has joined the cast of Cinemax‘s drama pilot Blanco, starring Shiloh Fernandez.
Directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo from a script by Mark Rosner, the pilot from Fox Television Studios and Lakeshore Entertainment centers on Ruben (Fernandez), an uptown gangster — nicknamed Blanco for being a light-skinned Dominican — who uses his status as a confidential informant to turn the tables on law enforcement and build his criminal empire.
Rodriguez, currently appearing on the Netflix Original Series Orange Is The New Black, will play New York Police Department detective Stephanie Gomez.
Along with Rodriguez and Fernandez, the cast includes Amaury Nolasco, Franka Potente, Sebastian Arcelus, Audrey Esparza, Erik LaRay Harvey, and Alex Hernandez.
