Amazon has announced Narcos vs Zombies, an eight-episode series coming to Amazon Prime Video in 2020, that will focus on the collision between drug lords and the American military against an army of the undead along the U.S.-Mexico border, Variety reports.
In Narcos vs Zombies, legendary narco kingpin Alonso Marroquín (Peris-Mencheta) escapes from a high-security Mexican prison with his son Lucas (Arredondo) and finds refuge hiding at Paradiso, a remote drug rehab facility located on the U.S. side of the border. Meanwhile, test subjects from a failed U.S. military experiment — intended to transform wounded soldiers into killing machines — are left for dead near the border, only to revive as deadly mutant zombies. A Mexican SWAT team pursuing the Marroquíns is infected by the zombie horde, becoming a zombie army in its own right. Alerted to the threat, the U.S. Army embarks on a mission to annihilate them.
Narcos vs Zombies stars Sergio Peris-Mencheta (Rambo: Last Blood), Fátima Molina, Horacio García Rojas (Narcos: Mexico), Nery Arredondo, and Adria Morales.
The action-drama series is a Mexican production created and written by Nicolas Entel and Miguel Tejada Flores and directed by Rigoberto Castañeda. Entel serves as show-runner.
