An army of the undead along the U.S.-Mexico border will collide with drug lords and the American military in “Narcos vs Zombies,” a Mexican TV production coming to Amazon Prime Video in 2020, Variety reports.

“Narcos vs Zombies” stars Sergio Peris-Mencheta (Snowfall, Rambo: Last Blood), Fátima Molina (Falco, Sueño en Otro Idioma), Horacio García Rojas (Diablero, “Narcos: Mexico”), Nery Arredondo (Vuelven) and Adria Morales (“La Reina Soy Yo”).

In “Narcos vs Zombies,” legendary narco kingpin Alonso Marroquín (Peris-Mencheta) escapes from a high-security Mexican prison with his son Lucas (Arredondo) and finds refuge hiding at Paradiso, a remote drug rehab facility located on the U.S. side of the border. Meanwhile, test subjects from a failed U.S. military experiment — intended to transform wounded soldiers into killing machines — are left for dead near the border, only to revive as deadly mutant zombies. A Mexican SWAT team pursuing the Marroquíns is infected by the zombie horde, becoming a zombie army in its own right. Alerted to the threat, the U.S. Army embarks on a mission to annihilate them.

The action-drama series is a Mexican production created and written by Nicolas Entel (“Pecados De Mi Padre”) and Miguel Tejada Flores (Screamers, Beyond Re-Animator) and directed by Rigoberto Castañeda (Diablero, Hasta Que Te Conocí). Entel serves as showrunner.

Amazon announced “Narcos vs Zombies,” an eight-episode series that blends sci-fi, horror and action genres, will be available exclusively next year on Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide, including Mexico and the rest of Latin America.
