Peter Gadiot is embracing a new drama…
The 36-year-old half-Mexican actor has been cast as a series regular on NBC’s untitled drama pilot, which is based on the award-winning Dutch series Adam & Eva.
The project was written by The Village creator Mike Daniels and will be directed by Stephanie Laing.
The project, described as a funny and heartfelt drama, chronicles the epic love and lives of two complete strangers, Adam (Rappaport) and Eva (Chando), whose multiple run-ins begin to defy coincidence, leading both to believe in fate. The show breaks the mold by pairing a serialized, stand-up-and-cheer romantic comedy with the wildly diverse and often unexpected human stories of anyone who finds themselves six degrees from Adam and Eva.
Gadiot will play Felix, an ambitious fine art and fashion photographer whose depth and talent are an irresistible draw for Eva.
Series regular cast also includes Kevin Iannucci and Bethany Brown.
The Dutch series, which drew critical acclaim and ran from 2011-16, starred Teun Luijkx as Adam and Eva van de Wijdeven as Eva.
The adaptation is produced by Universal Television in association with 6107 Productions, David Janollari Entertainment and Willy Waltz International.
Gadiot, most recently seen in Yellowjackets, previously co-starred in USA’s Queen of the South as James Valdez. Other credits include Tut, opposite Ben Kingsley, Matador, from executive producer Robert Rodriguez; and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. On the film side, Gadiot worked with Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola in the short film Prada Candy.
