Actor Rosario Dawson will topline the pilot of USA Network drama "Briarpatch".
The 39-year-old actor will play Allegra "Pick" Dill, a tenacious and highly-skilled investigator working in Washington, DC for a young, ambitious Senator, Variety reported.

Allegra's search for the murderer turns into a dangerous excavation of her own past.
The pilot is based on the Ross Thomas novel of the same name with Andy Greenwald adapting for television.
