Costiera has officially begun. 

Jesse Williams (Your Place Or Mine, Only Murders In The Building, Broadway’s Take Me Out) will star as lead actor in Prime Video’s Costiera, the Italian Original action-drama series filmed in English and directed by Emmy award winner Adam Bernstein.

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. 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.

📣 Adam Bernstein, Director, said: ‘‘It’s an amazing opportunity for me to work with Jesse Williams on Costiera. 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.’’

📣 Luca Bernabei, producer, said: “With director Adam Bernstein, we thought of Jesse from the very beginning: an actor with the sympathy, charm, and credibility necessary to portray the Italo-American soul of our protagonist”.
