Albert has been cast in the recurring role of Tony Q in Big Dogs, a new episodic series created by Adam Dunn, based on his futuristic crime novels Rivers of Gold, The Big Dogs, Saint Underground, and the forthcoming The Unfathomable Deep.
The TV adaptation of Big Dogs stars Micheal Richardson Neeson, Lance Henriksen (Alien), and Michael Rabe (The Leftovers). Also in the cast are Manny Perez (Homeland, Luke Cage) and Brett Cullen (Narcos). The series has tapped David Platt, Darnell Martin (Cadillac Records, I Like It Like That), Matthew Penn (Damages, Royal Pains), and Tony Glazer (Hostage, Redrum) to direct episodes for the first season.
The series is set in a violent, decaying New York City torn by financial collapse, race riots, and a surging crime wave, where an underworld economy of illegal, debauchery-ridden nightclubs linked by a web of taxicabs is thriving. Neeson, in his first lead role, will play Renny, a young fashion photographer moving drugs through the taxi network for the party circuit, who’s forced to step up his game to a dangerous degree by his boss, Reza, the local front man for an international crime syndicate that’s looking to take over the city.
The series is written by Adam Dunn and Tony Glazer, produced by Aurelian Productions and Choice Films & Theatricals, and directed by David Platt, Darnell Martin, Matthew Penn, and Tony Glazer.
