HBO Max is getting a new DC comics adaptation! It’s called DMZ, and it’s based on the Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchilelli comic book series that lasted from 2005 to 2012.
The four-episode mini-series will transport viewers to a devastated New York City now known as the DMZ (or demilitarized zone)
Ava Duvernay’s Array Filmworks collaborated with Warner Bros. to produce the film. Television’s DMZ promises to be a wild journey and a fight for life as factions fight for control of the city’s resources.
Synopsis of DMZ
DMZ is set in the near future, when America is embroiled in a bitter civil war, leaving Manhattan a demilitarized zone (DMZ), destroyed and isolated from the rest of the world.
It chronicles the harrowing journey of fearless and fierce medic Alma Ortega (Rosario Dawson) to find the son she lost in the evacuation of New York City at the onset of the conflict. Throwing gasoline on the flames of that conflict is Parco Delgado (Benjamin Bratt), the popular, and deadly, leader of one of the most powerful gangs in the DMZ. He wants to rule this new world and will stop at nothing to secure that outcome.
The drama will examine the stark political and cultural divide in American society, where Alma must contend with the gangs, militias, demagogues, and warlords that control this lawless no man’s land. In doing so, she becomes the unlikely source of what everyone there has lost…hope.
