Development News - April 16, 2021

ABC's Promised Land.

  • John Ortiz will star in the drama pilot written by Matt Lopez. He previously starred for one season in HBO's Luck and one season in Netflix's Messiah. He also recurred on HBO's Togetherness.
  • He will play Joe Sandoval, the patriarch of the Sandoval family, a wealthy vineyard-owning family in the Sonoma Valley. He took a small vineyard owned by a former rival and turned it into a wine and beverage empire, alienating many, including members of his own family, along the way. More than just a savvy corporate fighter, he can do every job there is to do on a vineyard, but finds himself at a crossroads when an enemy from his past resurfaces.
