Benito Martinez is coming home…
The 44-year-old Latino actor has been cast in TNT’s drama pilot Home from writer Aron Eli Coleite and Jerry Bruckheimer Television.
Martinez joins a cast that includes Bethany Joy Lenz, Andrew Buchan, Bruce Greenwood, Nicole Muñoz and Roberta Colindrez. He joins previously announced cast members JoBeth Williams, Harris Dickinson and Sawyer Barth.
Home delves into the secrets lingering behind the façade of a seemingly idyllic suburban family. Rose Bell (Lenz) couldn’t be happier: An accomplished designer with a successful business, the newly pregnant Rose is thriving in a wonderful life with her husband, Joe (Buchan), a highly regarded prison psychologist, and enjoying being a stepmother to his two sons PK (Dickinson) and Nate (Barth). But her image of her perfect family is shattered when she discovers long-buried secrets that threaten to destroy the very foundation of her life.
Martinez is prison Warden Peter Ochoa, a former uniformed cop who doesn’t believe in rehabilitation and parole, which puts him in direct opposition to prison psychologist Joe, who is determined to prove that even the most sociopathic criminals are capable of redemption.
Muñoz plays Danica, a latch-key girl next door who instigates a love triangle when she falls for both her new neighbors, PK and Nate Bell.
Colindrez is Cassie, Rose’s best friend and business partner, a contractor who brings Rose’s design to life.
Home is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Horizon Television, with Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman serving as executive producers.
