‘Zorro’ Amazon Series Casts ‘Elite’ Star Miguel Bernardeau, Renata Notni (EXCLUSIVE)
By John Hopewell – May 13, 2022
Miguel Bernardeau, Guzmán in Netflix smash hit “Elite,” and Mexico’s Renata Notni will head the cast of “Zorro,” a reboot series from Los Angeles-based Secuoya Studios and John Gertz that will stream in exclusivity on Amazon’s Prime Video in the U.S., Latin America and Spain.
The flagship series at Secuoya Studios, “Zorro,” a modern take on the hero, is directed by Javier Quintas, whose credits include episodes of “Money Heist” and “Sky Rojo,” and Miguel Angel Vivas, a director on “Locked Up” and “Unauthorized Living.” Written by Carlos Portela (“Hierro,” “Velvet Collection”), the 10 episode series is executive produced for Secuoya Studios by David Martínez, David Cotarelo and Angela Agudo.
Bernardeau will play a new version of Diego de la Vega, a landowner and, in disguise, masked hero of the people. Notni takes on the role of Lolita Marquez, the love of his youth.
The series is set to shoot at different locations on Spain’s Canary Islands.
“When Andy, Jesús and Sergio proposed we should make ‘Zorro’ and we gained the confidence of John Gertz, we faced the honor, but also responsibility, of taking the most important Hispano American hero of all times and adapting him for a new generation,” said Martínez, Secuoya Studios head of fiction.
He added: “To do this, we’ve been lucky to count on Prime Video, the best partners possible for this journey, to form both a cast which is a luxury as well as the best creative and production team in the industry.”
