Rodriguez will play the title role, a gifted agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, in ABC's drama pilot based on Karin Slaughter’s bestselling Will Trent novel series adapted by Liz Heldens and Dan Thomsen. Slaughter will serve as an executive producer, along with Rodriguez. Trent is a "loner within the law enforcement community and hides the severe dyslexia that went untreated during his traumatic childhood in foster care," according to The Hollywood Reporter. "But with the best clearance rate at the GBI, he could care less if people don’t like him." Rodriguez was previously attached to star opposite Plaza as siblings in the Hulu pilot Olga Dies Dreaming, but The Hollywood Reporter reports Hulu has passed on the pilot.
