DMZ takes place in a near-future where an American civil war has left Manhattan a demilitarized zone (hence the title) that is isolated from the rest of the world. The story follows a female medic who is desperately searching for her lost son in the DMZ while contending with gangs, militias, and warlords all the while saving lives along the way.

The series will star Rosario Dawson (Briarpatch) as Alma, Benjamin Bratt (Doctor Strange) as Parco Delgado and Freddy Miyares (When They See Us) as Skel.

Dawson’s Alma is a fierce medic who saves lives while desperately searching for her lost son. As she contends with the gangs, militias, demagogues, and warlords who now control the lawless island, she becomes the unlikely source of what everyone there has lost: hope.

Robert Patino (WestworldSons of Anarchy, Fear Street) will serve as showrunner and executive producer, with DuVernay set to direct and executive produce with Patino. The project comes from DuVernay’s Array Filmworks and Warner Bros. TV.

In 2018, DuVernay had signed a massive $100 million multi-year overall deal with Warner Bros. Television Group to produce new original content for broadcast and cable, premium cable, streaming services, and other platforms. The new series will be added to the growing slate of DuVernay’s ongoing projects which include: the DC film New Gods; Netflix’s docufilm about the late Grammy-winning rapper Nipsey Hussle; Battle at Versailles; and Cherish the Day.
