After starring in Netflix’s Yes Day, Edgar Ramirez is set to lead the streamer’s upcoming series Florida Man from creator and writer Donald Todd.
Florida Man will follow Ramirez as an ex-cop who is “is forced to return to his home state of Florida to find a Philly mobster’s runaway girlfriend, what should be a quick gig becomes a spiraling journey into buried family secrets and an increasingly futile attempt to do the right thing in a place where so much is wrong.”
Todd will serve as showrunner and executive produce alongside Bateman and Constigan. The series is described as “a wild odyssey into a sunny place for shady people in the spirit of Body Heat and Elmore Leonard’s Out of Sight.”
Florida Man has been given an eight-episode order and will be produced by Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan’s Aggregate Films.
