Advertisements Briarpatch - new series on USA. Stars Rosario Dawson. Premiered this week (Feb 6 2020). From wiki... Briarpatch is an American anthology series starring Rosario Dawson based on the Ross Thomas novel of the same name. The series was picked up in late January 2019 by USA Network, after being ordered to pilot in April 2018. When Detective Felicity Dill is killed in a car bombing, her sister Allegra Dill, an investigator working for a senator returns home to San Bonifacio to find her killer. In the process of her investigation she uncovers a web of corruption in the small Texas town. I thought it was an okay start. Didn't grab me strong, but enjoyable enough to keep watching for now. Weird vibe to this show. Definitely had that noir feel to it. Ten episode season.
