New TV series "ZeroZeroZero" looks at cocaine trade in Saviano book adaptation

Ranging from Mexico to Italy, new television series "ZeroZeroZero" looks at the violent and dangerous world of cocaine trafficking, in a fictionalised adaptation of Italian writer Roberto Saviano's book.

The eight-part series follows characters from Mexican drug cartels, a Calabrian organised crime group as well as the middlemen all seeking a cut of the lucrative cocaine market.

Members of the series' cast and Saviano premiered the first two episodes at the Venice Film Festival on Thursday (September 5), in which viewers are taken from the Calabrian hills to Monterrey and New Orleans.

The series, which stars Andrea Riseborough of "W.E." and "Black Mirror" fame, Dane DeHaan of "Chronicle" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", and "The Usual Suspects" actor Gabriel Byrne, begins with a huge order of cocaine being placed in Italy.

Saviano, 39, shot to fame with his 2006 book "Gomorrah" about the mafia in Naples.

Since its publication, he has lived under police protection.

In "ZeroZeroZero", which was released in 2016 and whose name comes from a nickname for pure cocaine, he delves into the global cocaine trade, looking at its reach in the global economy and seeing it as a commodity as potent as oil.
