The project, from Burn Notice Executive Producer Ben Watkins, centers on the powerful Judge Harris Pernell (Perlman), a hard-living, law-bending married man with a high-end call girl on the side who has a religious awakening and starts hearing voices through his ventilator-bound son that could be God speaking to him.

Royo will play the series-regular role of Bobo, the local mayor and Pernell’s best friend.
