About the series:

The Green Veil, from executive producers John Leguizamo and Aram Rappaport is an 8 episode drama series that follows a government agent in the 1950s tasked with an unraveling secret mission that threatens to expose deeper secrets.

In his first ever leading role in a television series, John Leguizamo stars as Gordon Rogers, an immigrant who came into the US as a child and dedicated his life to achieving the American Dream. He experiences both an insidious obsession with that dream, and the societal limitations to it placed upon certain groups.
