Jesse Williams (Your Place Or Mine, Only Murders In The Building, Broadway’s Take Me Out) will star as lead actor in and produce Prime Video’s Costiera (w/t), the Italian Original action-drama series filmed in English and directed by Emmy award-winner Adam Bernstein (Breaking Bad, Fargo, Scrubs, 30 Rock, Masters of Sex, Californication, Better Call Saul, Orange Is the New Black, Shameless). The series is currently under production.

Jesse Williams will play the role of Daniel De Luca, a half Italian former U.S. marine who returns to Italy, the land of his childhood, as a fixer in one of the world’s most luxurious hotels, located on the spectacular coastline of Positano. Shortly after Daniel, or DD as everybody knows him, starts working at the hotel, one of the owner’s daughters disappears. He must do whatever it takes to find her and bring her home, while still solving the ever changing problems of the exclusive hotel guests. Alongside an international cast, Costiera (w/t) will feature a gripping storyline, fast-paced action and comedy, a complex main character and spectacular locations.

Based on an idea by Luca Bernabei, written by Elena Bucaccio, Matthew Parkhill and Francesco Arlanch, the highly anticipated international action drama, is co-produced by Amazon MGM Studios and Luca Bernabei for Lux Vide, a Fremantle company.

Under a highly innovative deal structure, Amazon holds full exclusive rights in Italy, France, Spain and Portugal. Fremantle will handle global sales in all other territories.

Adam Bernstein, Director, said: ‘‘It’s an amazing opportunity for me to work with Jesse Williams on Costiera (w/t). I’ve always admired his work – both on stage and screen, and he’s the first actor that came to my mind for the role of Daniel De Luca. Jesse provides a perfect combination of intelligence, charisma, and humour, and we’re incredibly lucky to have to have him at the centre of our show.’’

Costiera (w/t) will join the thousands of TV shows and movies in the Prime Video catalogue, including the Original Italian productions No Activity – Niente da segnalare, Elf Me, Gigolò per caso, Everybody Loves Diamonds, Prisma, and Bang Bang Baby.

Costiera (w/t) is the latest project from Lux Vide, a leading European production company behind several recent global hits including Medici, Leonardo, and Devils, starring Patrick Dempsey and sold in over 200 territories internationally.

Costiera (w/t) is the latest addition to the Prime membership.
