Max picked up DMZ from executive producers Roberto Patino and Ava DuVernay. The show hails from Roberto Patino and Ava DuVernay and stars Rosario Dawson and Benjamin Bratt. The logline: "DMZ" is set in the near future, when America is embroiled in a bitter civil war, leaving Manhattan a demilitarized zone (DMZ), destroyed and isolated from the rest of the world. Dawson plays Alma Ortega, a medic whose son goes missing when New York City is evacuated during a second Civil War.

Westworld scribe Patino will serve as showrunner and write all episodes, while both he and DuVernay, who directed the pilot episode, will executive produce.

Production on the series is slated to begin in 2021.

"'DMZ' offers up an explosive playground which, more than anything else, exalts the resilience of community and the human spirit". The drama will examine the stark political and cultural divide in American society, where Alma must contend with the gangs, militias, demagogues and warlords that control this lawless no man's land.

"Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, said: "'DMZ's unflinching story of a country torn apart resonates eerily and profoundly amid our current state of the union". "With the powerhouse visionary team of Ava and Roberto at the helm, bringing this critically acclaimed DC gem to life promises to entertain and inspire hope".

In addition to Dawson and Bratt, "DMZ" series stars include Hoon Lee ("Banshee,"Warrior"), Freddy Miyares ("When They See Us", "The L Word: Generation Q") and Jordan Preston Carter ("The Haves and the Have Nots")". Wood has been accused of sexual misconduct publicly multiple times, even once a few short weeks before the original DMZ series announcement. Other companies very quickly cut ties with him and while he doesn't seem to be directly involved here, his name will most certainly be on it having co-created the comic.

Nevertheless, HBO Max has been doing right by DC properties and for DC fans of late (Snyder Cut anyone?) and there's every reason to believe DMZ will be a powerful, entertaining show when it debuts.
