The drug trade is international, but it is rarely portrayed as such on TV. Drug thrillers often take place in one country and in one or two languages (usually Spanish and English) – but in reality, there are producers, buyers, and sellers, all based in different parts of the world. So a show depicting the drug business in a realistic way should also move around the world. ZeroZeroZero is that. It’s a fast thriller set in many countries: The U.S., Italy, Mexico, Senegal, and Morocco to name a few. The stunning cinematography bounces between contexts seamlessly, telling a nihilistic yet thrilling story of a conflict that starts within the Italian Mafia.
