Amazon Prime Video released the first look for its upcoming action crime drama series 'ZeroZeroZero'. Inspired by the book by Roberto Saviano titled 'Gomorrah', the limited series explores the global cocaine industry and how it contributes to the global economy.

That definitely seems like a massive subject to be told in a web series. But in 'ZeroZeroZero' we follow the characters through whom the series explains how illegal economy becomes a part of the legal economy and how the two are interconnected in a cruel game of power and money. 

Here is everything you need to know about the series:

Release date

'ZeroZeroZero' will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on March 6. 

Plot

According to the official synopsis of the show: "The series follows the journey of a cocaine shipment, from the moment a powerful cartel of Italian criminals decides to buy it until the cargo is delivered and paid for."

"The international cocaine trade has its roots in the fragile network linking powerful organizations and unscrupulous individuals."

"Through its characters' stories, the series explains the mechanisms by which the illegal economy becomes part of the legal economy and how both are linked to a ruthless logic of power and control affecting people's lives and relationships"

The synopsis continues that the show will cover "Mexican cartels managing the drug's production, Italian crime syndicates handling worldwide distribution, and American businessmen and women, apparently above suspicion, controlling the seemingly infinite amount of money which this market produces."

It adds, "ZeroZeroZero tells what happens when one of the spokes on this giant wheel breaks down just as a massive shipment of cocaine is being moved from Mexico to Europe."
