Rodriguez, Studio 8 CEO Jeff Robinov and his colleague John Graham are producing with Solstice Studios.

Pardo recently had a cameo as character Jack Toretto in Universal’s blockbuster hit F9: The Fast Saga and he will next be seen in STX’s Violence Of Action alongside Chris Pine and Ben Foster.
He recently wrapped on Amazon’s conspiracy-thriller series The Terminal List opposite Chris Pratt. Earlier this week he was awarded the Imagen Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of EZ Reyes in FX’s hit show Mayans M.C. which has been picked up for a fourth season.
Pardo is repped by UTA, Echo Lake Entertainment, Viewpoint and Hansen Jacobson.
