Netflix has revealed the first trailer for its Italian superhero series "Zero," which marks the first-ever scripted series to platform the black Italian experience. The series will arrive on Netflix on April 21st.
A shy boy used to feel invisible. An extraordinary superpower that takes over when he meets a group of friends intent on saving their neighborhood. Making it only together. Love, the desire to pursue dreams, the power of friendship. ZERO, the new Netflix Italian original series in 8 episodes born from an idea by Antonio Dikele Distefano and produced by Fabula Pictures with the participation of Red Joint Film, available on Netflix from April 21st.
ZERO is directed by Paola Randi, Ivan Silvestrini, Margherita Ferri and Mohamed Hossameldin. The series is based on the novel “Non ho mai avuto la mia età” by Antonio Dikele Distefano, edited, in Italy, by Mondadori.
To mark the rhythm of a "street" story there is an important soundtrack featuring some of the greatest contemporary artists, both Italian and international.
ZERO tells the story of a shy boy with an extraordinary superpower: becoming invisible. Not a superhero, but a modern hero who learns about his powers when the Barrio, the district of the Milan suburb from which he wanted to escape, is in danger. Zero will have to wear the uncomfortable clothes of a hero, despite himself and, in his adventure, he will discover the friendship of Sharif, Inno, Momo, and Sara, and perhaps even love.
The cast is made up of young Italian talents, first and second generation: Giuseppe Dave Seke (Zero / Omar), Haroun Fall (Sharif), Beatrice Grannò (Anna), Richard Dylan Magon (Momo), Daniela Scattolin (Sara), Madior Fall (Hymn), Virgina Diop (Awa), Alex Van Damme (Thierno), Frank Crudele (Sandokan), Giordano de Plano (Ricci), Ashai Lombardo Arop (Marieme), Roberta Mattei (La Vergine), Miguel Gobbo Diaz (Rico) and Livio Kone (Honey) .
Antonio Dikele Distefano, a rising star in the Italian publishing scene, wrote the series, created by Menotti, together with Stefano Voltaggio (also Creative Executive Producer of ZERO) Massimo Vavassori, Carolina Cavalli, and Lisandro Monaco giving shape to an original and unique exploration of Milan and recounting a rich and varied world of under-represented cultures, to which significant contributions from the rap scene will be added.
