Danny Trejo to Star in Sci-Fi Series Paragon

-

Action star and real-life hero Danny Trejo has joined the cast of Pikchure Zero Entertainment’s new sci-fi action series Paragon, which is currently in production for a 2020 launch.

The series, which will be pitched soon to networks, will encompass a seven-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, who in addition to directing the episodes, produces alongside Khu.

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.”

In addition to Danny Trejo (Machete, 3 From Hell), the series — based on an idea by Price and Khu — stars Franziska Schissler and Dilan Gwyn.
