Giancarlo Esposito to Star in New AMC Series ‘The Driver’

Uh-oh! Another show, another good time, and another opportunity to be thrilled. Who needs a cabbie?

If you’re familiar with Giancarlo Esposito, you’ve most likely seen him on the enthralling ‘Breaking Bad.’ He appears to be making a comeback in another spectacular show, ‘The Driver.’

Esposito will portray a cab driver whose life takes an unexpected turn when he is hired to escort a notorious gangster in The Driver.

The Driver is an adaption of the 2014 British crime drama of the same name. Let’s go over the announcement in greater detail.

Because we’re excited to see Giancarlo Esposito return.

Giancarlo Esposito To Star In ‘The Driver’

The Driver will premiere in 2023, and the show will get a total of 6-episodes. The streaming platform where we can catch up on the show is none other than AMC & AMC+.

Giancarlo Esposito is best recognized for his role as Gus Fring in the AMC crime thriller Breaking Bad (2009–2011) and its prequel shows Better Call Saul (2017–present).

He received the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for this performance, as well as three Primetime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

And now, his role as a driver in this upcoming drama will add another great show to his record. The performer has also appeared in a number of movies and, presumably, numerous television shows.

Sunu Gonera collaborated with Brocklehurst to create this new adaptation. If you haven’t watched the 2014 version, you should give it a try.

AMC’s President Stated ‘Giancarlo Is A Singular Talent’

Looks like the streaming network AMC is excited to work with Giancarlo again. The president of the network stated something about the actor being a singular talent.

The President Of AMC Studios & AMC Network stated, “Giancarlo is a singular talent who is already beloved by AMC viewers through his standout performances in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.

We are excited to be continuing his relationship with AMC and AMC+ in a series built around him and an unforgettable character who takes what he thinks is a straightforward job opportunity and finds himself confronted with a world that tests him in ways he could never have imagined.”

Giancarlo Esposito Is Enthused To Work With The Streaming Network

Obviously, it’s actually a great thing to have such an amazing actor working for the network. But looks like, the star itself is enthused regarding his collaboration with the team.

He did mention something about his appearance in this upcoming show. “I am over the moon excited, enthused, and inspired to be in collaboration with the stellar network and creative team of AMC! Thanks for believing in me. It’s great to be back home!”

Along with that, Brocklehurst also expressed his excitement regarding this new series. “It is a pleasure and a privilege to be working with AMC on this bold reimagining of my U.K. mini-series.

Sunu Gonera and Theo Travers have both brought superb original voices to the premise and I am thrilled to be going on this ride with them.”

That’s remarkable; everyone is thrilled to have Giancarlo Esposito as the lead in their show. Travers expressed his excitement for ‘The Driver,’ calling it an honor to collaborate with one of the greatest actors.

“I couldn’t be more excited to help bring this show to life. I’ve been a fan of Giancarlo’s work since Spike Lee’s ‘Do The Right Thing.’ It’s a true honor to have the chance to collaborate with him in this way.”

‘The Driver’ Is A Dark Identity Quest For An Everyman

Travers also added about the show being a dark identity.

The Driver is a high-voltage, dark identity quest for an everyman trying to find renewed purpose in his life. We’re rooting for Vince as he goes down this wild and nihilistic route to discover who he once was, and in many ways still is, because it gets him out of a stuck place.

That’s where a lot of us feel we are right now, which makes this series so timely for today.”

Presumably, now that the show is casting members, we will hear more about it in the following days. You can stay tuned with us for more updates.
