Rosario Dawson is fightin’ for survival…
HBO Max has released a first look clip for limited series DMZ, starring the 42-year-old Puerto Rican and Cuban American actress and activist.
The series “leaps off the pages of the DC acclaimed graphic novel into the visual landscape of a dangerous and distorted Manhattan as one woman navigates a demilitarized zone in a harrowing quest to find her lost son,” according to the series’ logline.
The trailer teases an overgrown Manhattan, tensions among survivors, and highlights all that Dawson’s character is willing to do to bring her son back into her arms.
DMZ also stars Benjamin Bratt, Hoon Lee, Freddy Miyares, Jordan Preston Carter, Venus Ariel.
Also cast in the series are Rutina Wesley, Nora Dunn, Jade Wu, Rey Gallegos, Mamie Gummer, Agam Darshi, Juani Feliz and Henry G. Sanders.
DMZ hails from creator Roberto Patino, who executive produces with Ava DuVernay and ARRAY Filmworks’ Paul Garnes.
The limited series is based on the comic book series published by DC written by Brian Wood and illustrated by Riccardo Burchielli. Patino serves as showrunner and wrote the first episode, which was directed by DuVernay.
Ernest Dickerson directs and executive produces three episodes.
DMZ is produced by DuVernay’s ARRAY Filmworks in association with Warner Bros. Television.
