DMZ (HBO Max)

Rosario Dawson to Star in Ava DuVernay's 'DMZ' at HBO Max

Rosario Dawson is headed to HBO Max, signing on to star in a pilot directed by Ava DuVernay.

Dawson (Jane the Virgin, USA's upcoming Briarpatch) will play the lead role in DMZ, based on the comic book of the same title. The potential series is set in a United States torn apart by a second civil war, leaving Manhattan a demilitarized zone — the DMZ of the title.

DMZ is based on the Vertigo comic by Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli. It's set in a near future where the island of Manhattan is a no-man's land separating the two sides in a bitter civil war.

Dawson will play Alma, 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.

Roberto Patino (Westworld) is adapting the comic and will serve as showrunner on the pilot. DuVernay will direct and executive produce with Patino.

DC Comics ‘DMZ’: Benjamin Bratt Joins HBO Max Pilot From Ava DuVernay

We’ve learned that Benjamin Bratt has scored the series-regular role of Parco Delgado opposite Rosario Dawson in the HBO Max pilot of DC/Vertigo Comic series DMZ from Warner Bros. Television.

DMZ is set in the near future where America is embroiled in a bitter civil war, leaving Manhattan a demilitarized zone, destroyed and isolated from the rest of the world.

Bratt will play Parco Delgado, the popular — and deadly — leader of one of the most powerful gangs in the DMZ. He wants to rule the DMZ and will stop at nothing to secure that outcome. Delgado is known as a wildly magnetic, affable and equally influential man.
