Based on the novel Non ho mai avuto la mia età by Antonio Dikele Distefano, a rising star in the publishing scene in Italy, fantasy drama series Zero centers on a shy boy named Omar who is so accustomed to feeling invisible to other, he might as well be zero to them.

Omar/Zero wants to escape the Barrio, the neighborhood in a Milan suburb where he lives, but when the Barrio comes under threat from a small-time criminal who is setting about to control the area, his feeling of invisibility is made manifest: Zero becomes literally invisible. With this superpower, Zero becomes a modern-day hero when he meets and teams up with new friends Sharif, Inno, Momo, and Sara to save their neighborhood.

Zero, a Netflix Original series, premieres globally on April 21, exclusively on Netflix. (You can set a reminder for it now on the show’s Netflix page.)

Produced by Fabula Pictures (Baby, Sanctuary) with the participation of Red Joint Film, the eight-episode fantasy series is written by Antonio Dikele Distefano with Stefano Voltaggio (Inspector Nardone), Massimo Vavassori (Italia 70), Carolina Cavalli (Mi hanno sputato nel milkshake), and Lisandro Monaco (7 vite). It is directed by Paola Randi (Luna Nera), Ivan Silvestrini (Monolith), Margherita Ferri (Status), and Mohamed Hossameldin (Yousef).
