Another adventurous and alarming story released by Netflix is the series Jigsaw. This full-fledged heist drama stars Giancarlo Esposito, thus making it a good series for all the fans of this actor. A series that Netflix much awaited as it is one of an upcoming interactive series.
All About the Story in This Series
jigsaw is one of the crime thrillers presented by Eric Garcia who even produced an excellent horror film, ‘The autopsy of Jane Doe,’ Automatik entertainment, and Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions. The announcement of the series was made on Twitter, with Netflix introducing it as one of the heist dramas that will follow non-linear storytelling to keep the viewers in control.
Something interesting to note about this series is that viewers will be the actual writers of this series where with just one click on their TV remotes or computer, they can change the decisions in the series. This was even done with a movie called Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, but doing such an act with a movie was relatively easy but now coming up with such a series seems impossible, just think of how many options it can lead to if viewers are allowed to follow the story and make decisions in it.
About the Series
One of the official press releases gave information regarding this series where they said that it is composed of eight parts that follow the story of almost 24 years before the heist and a year after the event.
Immensely Talented Cast of the Show
The cast selected for any latest Netflix series shows an impressive selection. It proves true for the jigsaw, too, where stars like Giancarlo Esposito, Rufus Sewell, Peter Mark Kendall, Rosaline Elbay, Paz Vega, Tati Gabriel, and Jay Courtney are playing their parts. Director of elite squad Jose Padilha will be working for the first two episodes in the series. Complete details of the characters portrayed by different actors have also been revealed by Netflix, thus making fans curious about them.
Esposito plays the role of Leo Pap, who is supposedly a leader with the mind of an engineer who is peculiar about details. An unfortunate event made him a thief at a young age, and when given a chance to get out of that life, he couldn’t stay away from crime, and thus it cost him his family and freedom. Another character is Ava Mercer played by Vega who is playing the role of an attorney, she is best at home and perfect in the courtroom too.
Release Date of the Series
An estimate by comparing the series with the ‘Russian doll’ says that both the series were filmed in New York City where in Russian doll started shooting on February 18, 2018, and debuted on February 1, 2019, and as both the series had eight episodes thus a similar timeline can be expected for the series. For all the fans waiting for Netflix to release jigsaw, it may take September 2022 to steam this movie.
