ZeroZeroZero - Season 1
ZeroZeroZero is an 8x50’ action crime Drama - Crime spanning three continents and six different countries inspired by best-selling author Roberto Saviano’s(“Gomorrah”) book of the same title. The series follows the journey of a cocaine shipment, from the moment a powerful cartel of Italian criminals decides to buy it until the cargo is delivered and paid for. The international cocaine trade has its roots in the fragile network linking powerful organizations and unscrupulous individuals. Through its characters’ stories, the series explains the mechanisms by which the illegal economy becomes part of the legal economy and how both are linked to a ruthless logic of power and control affecting people’s lives and relationships: Mexican cartels managing the drug’s production, mafia groups handling worldwide distribution, and the businessmen and women, apparently above suspicion, controlling the seemingly infinite amount of money which this market produces. “ZeroZeroZero” tells what happens when one of the spokes on this giant wheel breaks down just as a massive shipment of coke is being moved from Mexico to Europe. An epic power struggle is sparked engaging everyone involved, from the corner dealer up to the most powerful boss in the hierarchy of international organized crime – their lives and livelihoods hang in the balance.
