This new adaptation of Johnston McCulley’s literary classic, set in mid-19th century California, is executive produced by David Martínez, David Cotarelo and Ángela Agudo.

Directed by Javier Quintas, Miguel Ángel Vivas and José Luis Alegría, the 10-episode series which will be available through Prime Video in the United States, Latin America and Spain, stars Miguel Bernardeau, Renata Notni, Dalia Xiuhcoatl, Emiliano Zurita, Andrés Almeida, Elia Galera, Chacha Huang, Joel Bosqued, Francisco Reyes, Peter Vives and Fele Martínez, among others.

"During the last several weeks, we've greatly enjoyed the rehearsals and preparation with the cast and crew, and now, the first days of shooting are definitely exceeding our expectations given the work of the actors, the photography team, the art team, and the specialists. We are extremely grateful to the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, the island's city councils and the entire Canarian team, which is exceptional," says David Martínez, director of Fiction at Secuoya Studios.

"We’re very proud to be bringing to life an IP as powerful as Zorro, one that is beloved and recognized throughout the world and with fans of all ages. We’re excited to have the opportunity to bring what we can consider the first “superhero” in history to a new generation of viewers, and we’re doing it with a world-class international team, who have taken on this challenge with the same enthusiasm and responsibility as we have," adds the executive producer.
