Gina Rodriguez is going into survival mode…
The 37-year-old Puerto Rican Golden Globe-winning actress will star in Amazon’s television series adaptation of QCode mystery thriller podcast Last Known Position.
In addition to starring in the project, Rodriguez – who starred in the scripted podcast — will serve as an executive producer.
Last Known Position charts the fallout of a brand new state-of-the-art American commercial jetliner vanishing on its maiden voyage over the Pacific Ocean. The ensuing air crash investigation discovers evidence of a creature of the deep that may have been responsible.
Premiering in late December 2021, the podcast was created by writer Luke Passmore and directed and executive-produced by John Wynn. Passmore is attached to adapt and executive-produce the series.
Along with Rodriguez and Passmore, executive producers for the series will be Rob Herting, Sandra Yee Ling, and Michele Zarate on behalf of QCode; Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Fred Berger, Justin Levy and Jeremy Platt on behalf of Automatik; and Molly Breeskin on behalf of I Can and Will Productions.
The eight-episode first season of the podcast also starred James Purefoy, Manny Jacinto, Olivia Cheng, Ashley Bell, JR Bourne, Travis Joe Dixon, Matthew Henerson, Jessica Oyelowo, Venk Potula and Giovanna Quinto. It’s not clear yet whether any of those actors will be back for the television update.
