Action superstar Danny Trejo has joined the cast of Pikchure Zero Entertainment’s new sci-fi action series “Paragon”, which is currently in production and will premiere in 2020. Today, we’ve got the first image of the cast.
The series, soon out to networks, will feature a 7-episode first season, with each 43-minute episode fixing on the human race dealing with the obliteration of Heaven.
“Paragon” is a sci-fi action series that follows the different factions of society as they deal with Heaven’s destruction. With only a small piece of the after-life to live for, everyone from Death himself is fighting to claim the Elysian for themselves.
We have always loved the Sci-fi fantasy genre, and we wanted to create a series that explored one of the most intriguing questions of humanity. Where do we go when we die? And what would happen if Heaven no longer existed?”, says Justin Price (interview).
Price adds, “Paragon is an edgier and grittier cable style series in the vein of Firefly and Altered Carbon. I believe we have an electric hybrid that explores the human spectrum of dealing with loss and love in a stylistic way. Danny Trejo is outstanding as Kincaid, the half-dead leader of disbanded reapers.”
Based on an idea by Price and Khu, “Paragon” also features Franziska Schissler, Dilan Gwyn, and Justin Price (The Dawnseeker, Alien Reign of Man) who will not only star but also write, direct and produce the series.
