It was only a matter of time…
Amazon just announced an eight-episode series called Narcos vs Zombies is coming to Amazon Prime Video in 2020. This news comes to us via Variety where they say the show, which blends sci-fi, horror and action genres, will be available exclusively on Prime Video next year.
It stars Sergio Peris-Mencheta (Rambo: Last Blood), Fátima Molina (Falco), Horacio García Rojas (Narcos: Mexico), Nery Arredondo (Vuelven) and Adria Morales (La Reina Soy Yo).
In the series, a legendary narco kingpin named Alonso Marroquín (Peris-Mencheta) escapes from a high-security Mexican prison with his son Lucas (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. A Mexican SWAT team pursuing the Marroquíns is infected by the zombie horde, becoming a zombie army in its own right. Alerted to the threat, the U.S. Army embarks on a mission to annihilate them.
Produced by Dynamo and Red Creek Productions, the action-drama series is a Mexican production created and written by Nicolas Entel and Miguel Tejada Flores (Screamers, Beyond Re-Animator) and directed by Rigoberto Castañeda.
Entel also serves as showrunner.
