Showtime has released a brand new trailer for American Gigolo, its upcoming drama that’s based on Paul Schrader’s 1980 neo-noir film of the same name. The series is set to make its debut on September 9.

The video, which you can check out below, highlights Julian Kaye’s quest to find the person responsible for his 15-year incarceration. It also teases the character’s rekindled affair with Michelle, whose husband is potentially the one who framed him.

Showtime’s American Gigolo is a present-day reimagining of the iconic 1980 film. “Bernthal will play Julian Kaye, who is introduced 15 years after he’s been arrested for murder,” reads the synopsis. “He’s struggling to find his footing in the modern-day Los Angeles sex industry, while seeking the truth about the setup that sent him to prison all those years ago and also hoping to reconnect with Michelle, his one true love.”

Joining Bernthal are Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire) as Michelle, a character previously portrayed by Lauren Hutton in the original, Rosie O’Donnell (SMILF) as homicide Detective Sunday, Lizzie Brocheré (Falling Water) as sex work ring heiress Isabelle, Gabriel LaBelle (Dead Shack) as a younger version of Julian named Johnny, Leland Orser (Ray Donovan) as Richard Stratton, a self-made tech billionaire, and guest star Wayne Brady (The Wayne Brady Show) as Lorenzo, Julian’s best friend and mentor.

American Gigolo was originally developed by David Hollander, who left the project last April following his misconduct allegations. Executive producers are original film producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, and KristieAnne Reed, with Bernthal set as a producer. It is a production by Paramount Television Studios.
