Netflix is diving into a new area of content. For the first time, the streaming service is producing a series centered around Black Italian life. The main character, Zero, is tasked with saving his neighborhood when he discovers he has supernatural powers.
“Zero, the new Netflix original series, coming April 21st, 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,” Netflix writes.
The series joins a crowded slate of Netflix set to hit the streaming platform this month. The Circle, Concrete Cowboy and Yasuke are all set to hit the streaming service in April
Zero will hit Netflix on April 21. Check out the complete trailer below.
