An army of zombies, drug lords and the American military at war? Sounds good to us.
The Mexican series Narcos vs Zombies will premiere on Amazon Prime Video next year.
The series is a Mexican production created and written by Nicolas Entel (Pecados De Mi Padre) and Miguel Tejada Flores (Screamers, Beyond Re-Animator), directed by Rigoberto Castañeda (Diablero, Hasta Que Te Conocí) and stars Sergio Peris-Mencheta (Snowfall, Rambo: Last Blood), Fátima Molina (Falco, Sueño en Otro Idioma), Horacio García Rojas (Diablero, Narcos: Mexico), Nery Arredondo (Vuelven) and Adria Morales (La Reina Soy Yo).
It is comprised of eight episodes and will be available exclusively on Prime Video in more than 200 countries
The series follows the story of legendary narco kingpin Alonso Marroquín (Peris-Mencheta), who escapes from a high-security Mexican prison with his son Lucas (Nery Arredondo) and finds refuge hiding at Paradiso, a remote drug rehab facility located on the U.S. side of the border. Meanwhile, test subjects from a failed U.S. military experiment —intended to transform wounded soldiers into killing machines— are left for dead near the border, only to revive as deadly mutant zombies. In its pursuit of the runaway Marroquins, the Mexican SWAT team is infected by the newly-created zombies, becoming a zombie army in its own right. Alerted of the imminent threat that this new species represents to humanity, the U.S. Army embarks on a mission to annihilate them.
“We are always looking to bring new kinds of premium content to our Prime members, therefore we are very excited about this new and innovative series that will surely be loved by fans of a variety of genres,” said Javier Szerman, Head of Mexico Originals, Amazon Prime Video. “The story of Narcos vs Zombies is something that hasn’t been done at this scale in Latin America.”
