MONSTERS OF GOD: New Talent Announced For Rod Lurie Series [TNT]

Rod Lurie

Jim True-Frost, Alicia Sixtos, And Efren Ramirez Join Monsters Of God

TNT adds Jim True-Frost, Alicia Sixtos, and Efren Ramirez to the cast of Rod Lurie‘s drama series pilot Monsters of God.

Set in the aftermath of the Civil War, the planned series is already slated to star Garret Dillahunt and will feature Lurie in the director’s chair for the first episode. Also joining Lurie as executive producers on the program are Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Sarah Esberg, and Battle Plan Productions’ Marc Frydman:

In Monsters of God, written and to be directed by Lurie, savagery and violence are the cornerstones of Colonel “Terrible” Bill Lancaster (Dillahunt)’s holy war against the Comanche in post-Civil War Texas. Despite the peaceful co-existence between the Comanche and local townspeople, Lancaster sets out on a quest to kill off every single member of the tribe, bringing chaos to the town of Slater.

True-Frost will play Mayor Walton Green. Forward-thinking and steady all at once, Green butts heads with Colonel Lancaster (Dillahunt) over the Colonel’s new and aggressive tactics regarding the neighboring Comanche tribe. Sixtos will play Juanita, the charming prostitute who has captured the affections of Colonel Lancaster (Dillahunt). Ramirez is Jerome.  Of Mexican heritage and fluent in Comanche, Jerome works as Colonel Lancaster’s (Dillahunt) translator, exuding a close loyalty for the Colonel.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
