‘Jigsaw’: Giancarlo Esposito & Paz Vega to Lead Ridley Scott’s Netflix Series
Focusing on the largest heist ever attempted, the non-linear story will span across the 24 years leading up to the heist and the year following. The eight-episode series is loosely inspired by the real-life mystery of $70 billion in bonds that went missing from Manhattan during Hurricane Sandy.
Jigsaw is unlike any series you’ve seen before!
