Netflix has launched its first teaser for upcoming Italian series, Zero. Paola Randi, Ivan Silvestrini, Margherita Ferri and Mohamed Hossameldin are directing the series from a script by rising star author, Antonio Dikele Distefano, whose own novel, “Non ho mai avuto la mia età”, serves as the basis for the new series.
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.
Zero is produced by Fabula Pictures with the participation of Red Joint Film, and will stream on Netflix April 21. The official soundtrack will be made available in the coming days here.
Zero features a cast that includes the following in their respective roles: 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) .
