EXCLUSIVE: Following the success of its first homegrown drama series Banshee, Cinemax is high on another drama project about a protagonist straddling the worlds of crime and law enforcement. Titled Blanco, the project is formally still in development awaiting a green light, but it already is exploring casting. Written by Mark Rosner (Blue Bloods), Blanco centers on an uptown gangster who uses his status as a confidential informant to turn the tables on law enforcement and build his criminal empire. Fox TV Studios and Lakeshore Entertainment are producing, with Rosner and Lakeshore’s Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg executive producing.
