Netflix today revealed the first trailer for its new Brazilian production. Reality Z is set in Rio de Janeiro and shows a reality show house, where some people are confined during a zombie apocalypse.
Below you can check out the trailer, which shows action, comedy and suspense scenes, reminiscent of The Walking Dead.
Netflix also released the series’ official synopsis: “An ode to terror, humor and pop culture, Reality Z narrates in 10 episodes a zombie apocalypse that imprisons participants and producers of a reality show called Olympus. On a night of elimination from the program, the studio becomes a shelter for those who seek salvation in a Rio de Janeiro where madness and horror come to reign ”.
Reality Z is inspired by Dead Set, a British series created by Charlie Brooker (Black Mirror). In it, the participants of a reality show are confined in the house, with the producers, and need to decide how to get out of that situation.
In addition to Sato, Guilherme Weber, Ana Hartmann, Emilio de Mello, Carla Ribas, Luellem de Castro and Jesus Luz complete the main cast. João Costa signs the script, based on the adaptation by Cláudio Torres, who also directs the episodes alongside Rodrigo Monte.
Reality Z hits the Netflix catalog on June 10.
