Robert De Niro Is Bringing The Thrills Straight To Your House
More and more movie stars are making the transition over to television. Kevin Costner is in Yellowstone, and Sylvester Stallone is in Tulsa King. Even Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been in a couple of shows. Now Netflix is set to gain the legendary acting chops of the great Robert De Niro in an all-new conspiracy thriller series.
The streamer announced today the new limited series Zero Day, the first TV series to star the Academy Award-winning actor, and he’ll also serve as Executive Producer. Additionally, Lesli Linka Glatter has also boarded the series to serve as director and Executive Producer for all 6 of the show’s episodes.
No official description of the series has been given yet. So far, there is only a logline, which states: “Zero Day asks the question on everyone’s mind – how do we find the truth in a world in crisis, one seemingly torn apart by forces outside our control? And in an era rife with conspiracy theories and subterfuge, how much of those forces are products of our own doing, perhaps even our own imagining?”
Netflix’s Vice President of Scripted Series Peter Friedlander had this to say about the upcoming show: “Zero Day is a shrewd, heart-pounding conspiracy thriller that will keep audiences at the edge of their seats. It’s an honor to have this A-list caliber talent assembled, led by the iconic Robert De Niro, and brought to life by the unrivaled talents of Eric Newman, Noah Oppenheim, Lesli Linka Glatter, and Michael S. Schmidt.”
Eric Newman of Grand Electric Productions and Noah Oppenheim both wrote and Executive Produced this series, along with Schmidt and Jonathan Glickman. Zero Day will be produced as part of Grand Electric Productions’ overall production deal with Netflix. And the show only benefits more from the involvement of De Niro, whose career is known worldwide.
The actor is one of the best-known film stars of all time and has won two Academy Awards for his starring performances in Raging Bull and The Godfather Part II. In total, he’s been nominated for seven Academy Awards throughout his career. Despite this being his first official television role, De Niro has also been nominated for multiple Emmys, which includes a nomination for best actor in the TV-made film Wizard of Lies, which chronicled the downfall of Bernie Madoff.
Glatter has also been nominated for multiple Emmy awards for her work in hit shows such as Homeland and Mad Men. In her career, she has also directed episodes for shows such as Twin Peaks, Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Wife, and The Walking Dead. With this information in mind, fans can breathe easy knowing that this new thriller is in safe hands.
There is no release date for Zero Day yet, but more information will likely surface over the coming months.
