Williams will co-star with Plaza and Ramón Rodríguez in the pilot, based on the yet-to-be-released novel of the same name by Xóchitl Gonzalez. Rodríguez and Plaza play Nuyorican brother and sister from a gentrifying Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Williams will play Matteo, "who is described as a collector of music, of objects, of trivia, and mainly, of opinions," per Variety. "A passionate Brooklynite, he won’t just tell you where to find the best slice, he’ll drive you there to get it. He’d come across as a know it all if, in fact, he wasn’t so genuinely curious about everything. He’s a person keenly aware of people’s inclination to put everyone and everything into neat little boxes and he firmly refuses to conform."
