CSI: Miami's Adam Rodriguez Joins Paula Patton on ABC's Runner Pilot

Runner Pilot ABC

CSI: Miami alum Adam Rodriguez has boarded the cast of ABC’s Runner pilot, alongside Mission Impossible IV‘s Paula Patton.

The drama project stars Patton as Lauren Marks, a woman whose perfect life is ripped apart when her husband dies in a plane crash — or did he? To uncover the truth, Lauren must follow a trail of lies that take her into the world of cartels and the illegal gun trade between the U.S. and Mexico.

Rodriguez, our sister site Deadline reports, will play Troy, a man who is hated by Lauren’s family because of a past tragedy yet may be the only person who can help find her husband.

Rodriguez’s TV credits also include appearances on Necessary Roughness, Reckless and the new season of The Night Shift.

    Depending on the trailer/pilot/first few episodes i could easily watch this…but if they even touch the plot line of “she has to sleep with someone to find out where her husband is” or “she falls in love with someone else on the path towards finding her husband, and then she finds him and its a love triangle!” them im OUT. I don’t touch that affair/cheating garbage with a 10 foot pole…its lame, easy, melodramatic writing and its cheap.

    I’d say overall the synopsis is very light in meat on the bones…its basically “hot wife with perfect life has to go find her presumed dead husband in Mexico & experience bad stuff from bad guys to find him”. Lol that’s thin. Hopefully they have WAY more planned out, especially the ending…nothing worse than shows that write as they go with no future planned out.

      Show sounds a little more interesting than that if you read the article at Deadline.

        Your right, the finding out hes alive and traveling with a woman etc…thats pretty cool but it feels like someone watched the “Castle” episode where Rick was missing but theres video footage of him doing stuff that makes it look like hes missing on his own volition.

        I just read this bit: “Rodriguez, our sister site Deadline reports, will play Troy, a man who is hated by Lauren’s family because of a past tragedy yet may be the only person who can help find her husband.” and i’m inclined to think “of course Lauren and Troy are gonna hookup” which totally ruins any buzz i had for the show. Classic “my family hates you, i dont like you, but i HAVE to work with you to find my husband…but your so hot, and your helping me, and my husband is with some mystery woman…so we end up sleeping together” plot line. :/

    Meh..haven’t really like the guy since that forced and absurd attempt at pairing him with Callie on Miami. the only people who had less chemistry on that show was H and his supposed wife of 30 seconds.
