Plot Synopsis

A present-day re-imagining of the iconic 1980 film of the same name, AMERICAN GIGOLO is a drama series that follows Julian Kaye after his wrongful conviction release from 15 years in prison, as he navigates his complicated relationships with his former lover Michelle, his troubled mother, and the people who betrayed him. While Julian struggles to reconcile the escort he was in the past and the man he is today, Detective Sunday -- who is haunted by coercing a confession from Julian -- seeks the truth about the murder that sent Julian to prison all those years ago, unearthing a much larger conspiracy along the way. Meanwhile, Julian's one true love Michelle -- and the one he hopes to reconnect with -- now lives in a world that's complicated by her life with her husband, self-made billionaire Richard Stratton, and their son, Colin. Julian finds it easier to reconnect with Lorenzo -- his best friend, roommate and mentor since they first met in 1993 -- but does Lorenzo have ulterior motives? Finally, there's Isabelle, who grew up with Julian but has grown to be the successor of a large ring of sex workers while Julian was imprisoned.
On Sunday, October 30, 2022 at 9pm ET/PT, Showtime premiered "East of Eden," the season finale of AMERICAN GIGOLO. Julian recovers Colin from an unlikely savior. Sunday can't shake a connection from her past and present cases. Michelle considers what she wants -- and what Colin needs.
