We present current series highlights at Sky – in addition to well-known long-running favorites, we also take a look at upcoming new releases. In the first part we start with the crime trill “ZeroZeroZero”.
The “ZeroZeroZero” series deals with a wide variety of criminal and family systems that are equally brutal and hungry for power. It shows how the Mexican cartels, the Ndrangheta from Calabria and corrupt American businessmen are fighting for supremacy over the trade routes of the world’s most traded drug: cocaine.
The underground Italian Mafia boss Don Minu (Adriano Chiaramida) orders 5,000 kilos of cocaine in Mexico. The gigantic delivery is intended to seal his supremacy in the international drug trade. But his grandson Stefano (Giuseppe De Domenico) wants to thwart the plan. When the deposit for the deal fails to arrive, it has serious consequences for American middleman Edward Lynwood (Gabriel Byrne) and his children Emma (Andrea Riseborough) and Chris (Dane DeHaan).
The crime series “ZeroZeroZero” produced by Sky Studios – the title alludes to the purity levels of cocaine, three zeros stand for the best quality – shows the fight for trade routes and supremacy in the lucrative cocaine business, which is consumed by millions of people from all walks of life . The makers cleverly combine the different lines of action on different continents and make it clear that the profits from the drug trade have long been part of our economic system.
“ZeroZeroZero” was created by Stefano Sollima and the head authors Leonardo Fasoli and Mauricio Katz. It is based on the treatment by Fasoli and Sollima. Max Hurwitz and Maddalena Ravagli also belong to the team of authors. Stefano Sollima directed alongside Pablo Trapero and Janus Metz.
