The official trailer has been unveiled today for ZeroZeroZero, a Sky original series directed by Stefano Sollima (Gomorrah) and based on Roberto Saviano’s book “ZEROZEROZERO”. The fast-paced and edgy trailer unveils a mammoth crime frenzy of international drug trafficking. The show will air exclusively on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in the UK in 2020.
The series features an international cast including Andrea Riseborough (The Death of Stalin, Battle of the Sexes), Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spiderman 2, In Treatment), Gabriel Byrne (In Treatment, The Usual Suspects), Harold Torres (González, Sin Nombre, Northless), Giuseppe De Domenico (Euphoria), Adriano Chiaramida (Romanzo Criminale – La Serie), Francesco Colella (Made in Italy, Piuma) and Tcheky Karyo (Nikita, A Gang Story).
ZeroZeroZero looks at different criminal and family groups that are equally violent and power-hungry. It shows how the Mexican cartels, the Calabrian ‘Ndrangheta and corrupt American businessmen all compete for supremacy over the trade routes of the world’s most distributed drug, cocaine.
ZeroZeroZero was filmed across three continents (North America, Europe and Africa), in six languages (English, Spanish, Italian, French, Wolof and Arabic) and took almost a year to film. The eight-episode series is produced by Cattleya – part of ITV Studios – and Bartlebyfilm for Sky, CANAL+, Amazon Prime Video and Studiocanal TV.
ZeroZeroZero is created by Stefano Sollima (Gomorrah) and head writers Leonardo Fasoli (Gomorra la Serie, Maltese – Il Romanzo del Commissario) and Mauricio Katz (The Bridge, Niño Santo) and the first episode is based on a treatment by Fasoli and Sollima with Stefano Bises and Roberto Saviano. Max Hurwitz (Hell on Wheels, Manhunt: Unabomber) and Maddalena Ravagli (Gomorra la Serie, Maltese – Il Romanzo del Commissario) complete the team of writers.
Stefano Sollima directed the series with Janus Metz (Borg McEnroe, True Detective) and Pablo Trapero (Mondo Grua, The Clan). ZeroZeroZero is part of Sky’s plan to increase its investment in the production of original content through Sky Studios, the new pan-European creative home for the development and production of content.
