Having carved a niche for himself as an uber-villain, not only for Vince Gilligan but also in the Star Wars show “The Mandalorian”, Esposito looks set for a change of pace, taking on the role of apparent family man Gray Parish. But it’s a veneer that slips when his old partner, Colin (Skeet Ulrich, "Riverdale"), arrives on the scene, dragging him back into his former criminal life. 

Once back in, Gray looks set to head down a path that will reveal the truth behind his son’s supposed accidental death and ultimately force him to slide back into his role as a wheelman for some of the city's most dangerous and powerful gangsters. 

Also in the cast are Arica Himmel as Michael, Paula Malcomson as Ros, Ivan Mbakop as Zenzo, Bonnie Mbuli as Shamiso Tongai, and Zackary Momo as The Horse.

Giancarlo Esposito looks set to bring the same quiet intensity we’ve come to expect from one of TV’s best, so read on to find out how to watch “Parish” from wherever you are.

What can we expect from 'Parish'?

The official synopsis from AMC reads: "A reimagining of the BBC One series "The Driver", this hour-long thriller series follows Gray Parish (Giancarlo Esposito) — a good man with a troubled past who gave up his life of crime for life as a family man. But when his son is violently murdered, old habits return, sending him on a relentless quest with moral intentions and dangerous consequences.

Is 'Parish' a remake?

"Parish" is a 're-imagining' of the 2014 BBC series "The Driver" which starred David Morrissey in the role taken on by Giancarlo Esposito (then named Vince McKee) and was created by "Fool Me Once" writer Danny Brocklehurst.
