'Justified's' Walton Goggins Developing Cop Drama for Fox
He'll executive produce drama "Gringo" alongside "The Shield's" Adam Fierro, who will write the script.
Justified star Walton Goggins is reuniting with a familiar face for a drama at Fox.
Goggins will reteam with The Shield executive producer Adam Fierro to develop a cop drama set up at Fox, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Gringo will revolve around an American cop who moves south of the border with his Mexican wife and ends up caught in the middle of the cartel wars.
Goggins and Fierro, who worked together when the former starred on FX's The Shield from 2004 to 2008, co-wrote the story with the latter, attached to pen the script for the Fox drama. Fierro and Goggins will executive produce the Fox Television Studios drama, with the latter's manager, Darris Hatch (CMT's Working Class), on board to co-executive produce.
Goggins, who has been a regular on FX's Justified since season two, is not currently attached for an onscreen role.
This marks the latest behind-the-camera foray for Goggins, who most recently co-produced and starred in the 2001 short film The Accountant, which earned an Academy Award for best live-action short. His credits also include producing This Is All of Us, That Evening Sun, Randy and the Mob and Chrystal. He next appears in the feature Dermaphoria, due next year.
Goggins, who picked up a supporting actor Emmy nomination in 2011, is repped by ICM Partners and Darris Hatch Management.
Fierro's credits include The Walking Dead, Hawthorne, Dexter, 24 and Resurrection Blvd. He's repped by ICM Partners and attorney David Fox.
