Created by Nick Weiss and Isaac Laskin with Matt Lopez supervising and showrunning, Rosarito Beach is described as a light one-hour procedural that will challenge cultural assumptions. It pairs a disgraced, loose cannon female attorney from California with an ambitious, tightly wound Latino lawyer who is intent on building his practice in San Diego, taking on cases that straddle the U.S./Mexican legal systems.
Goldsmith-Thomas, Jennifer Lopez and Benny Medina executive produce alongside Weiss and Matt Lopez, while Laskin is co-executive producer. Nuyorican’s recently appointed head of development, Kristel Laiblin, is overseeing for the company. Universal TV, where Nuyorican is under an overall deal, is the studio.
